Star Alabama Transfer arrested for speeding, possession of marijuana

Alabama transfer Eli Ricks was arrested over the weekend for speeding, possession of marijuana and driving without insurance.

Eli Rick’s move from LSU to Alabama Football this year has the potential to be one of the biggest personnel changes in college football.

But he needs to be game-ready if he’s to help bring the Crimson Tide back to championship form.

His tenure at Alabama did not get off to a good start with news of an arrest this weekend that will surely land him a chat with head coach Nick Saban.

Ricks was charged Sunday with speeding, driving without insurance and possession of marijuana.

Overall, the allegations are not serious. Ricks’ bail has been set at $0 and he is unlikely to face any long-term consequences.

His biggest problem right now is facing Saban and whatever punishment he’s inflicting. Whether it’s a suspension or an internal penalty, Ricks must prove to the head coach and his teammates that he can act more responsibly while representing the Crimson Tide.

Ricks was a five-star prospect in the Class of 2020. He signed with LSU after high school and earned Freshman All-American honors after an impressive freshman season at college. His second season was more restrained and ended prematurely due to a shoulder injury. Shortly after the end of his season, he entered the transfer portal.

As one of the top transfers available on the portal, Ricks was courted by many but he chose to join Crimson Tide. He attended Spring Camp and is expected to contribute in 2022, whether as a starter or key support.
