Alabama Football: Alabama Announces 4-Star Freshman RB Desherrius Flowers Is Ineligible This Fall

Desherrius Flowers, a four-star running back in Alabama's 2015 class, will be ineligible to play for the Crimson Tide this fall, the school announced this afternoon. 

The 6-foot, 212-pound running back out of Prichard, Ala., will be ineligible due to a "recently discovered initial eligibility issue." 

Flowers was ranked a four-star recruit by all of the major recruiting services.

Alabama opens its season Sept. 5 against Wisconsin.
