Published Add your comment

Alabama have secured the signature of former Georgia tight-end Ty Flournoy-Smith for next season.

Flournoy-Smith was dismissed from Georgia after a number of off the field incidents including one criminal conviction but has since turned his fortunes around playing at George Military College.

His junior college coach said: "We haven't had any problems with Ty," Williams said. "He has done fine in the Cadet Corps. He has worked hard on the field, and he has done well in the classroom. He came in with a good attitude, and he was really helpful with some of our freshmen guys."

Alabama were competing with Ole Miss for Flournoy-Smith's signature but when Ole Miss dropped out, it left Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide as the sole destination.

Flournoy-Smith is a three-star prospect and rated as among the best tight-ends in the country by also puts Alabama at the top of the recruitment rankings so far with a number of five star prospects signed from the high school and college ranks.
