Alabama RBs Dee Hart, Alvin Kamara no longer with Tide

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Spor

Hart has not been with the team since the bowl game, while Kamara has transferred to a junior college.

Alabama running backs Dee Hart and Alvin Kamara are no longer with the program, slightly lightening the logjam in the loaded Tide backfield.

Hart was arrested Sunday and charged with possession of marijuana and giving false information, and the Alabama athletic department released a statement shortly thereafter which said that Hart had not been with the program since the team's Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma.

Kamara, for his part, will be transferring to Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, and could be a target for SEC schools after one year at the JUCO level.

Hart and Kamara were both four-star prospects coming out of high school. Hart had 22 carries for 78 yards and a touchdown as a sophomore in 2013, while Kamara did not play as a true freshman.

The Tide have had troubles with oversigning in the past. The events do help Alabama in its quest to adhere to NCAA rules about scholarship numbers, helping to keep its crowded backfield slightly less crowded:

Roll Bama Roll previously took a look at the numbers, and found the Tide would need to lose about eight players from their roster in order to get down to 85 scholarships. Two down, about six to go.
