Reserve Alabama running back Derrick Gore will look elsewhere to continue his college career.
Gore published a message on Instagram on Wednesday night, saying, “At this time I’ve chosen to explore the option of joining another program for my final 2 years of eligibility.”
Gore, a transfer from Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College, saw the field on a limited basis throughout the past two years. He totaled 18 carries for 93 yards this season, including a season-high 45 yards against Kent State.
Alabama finished 14-1 with a 35-31 loss to Clemson in the national championship game Monday. The result foiled the Crimson Tide’s bid of winning a second consecutive national championship.
These past two years have been nothing short of magical. It's difficult to come up with the words to describe this journey here at The University of Alabama. At this time I've chosen to explore the option of joining another program for my final 2 years of eligibility. To be clear, I want to give a special thanks to Coach Saban and Coach Burns for giving this kid from NY a shot, I'm forever grateful. So in closing I leave you with, Roll Tide!
