The University of Alabama has acted swiftly. According to a report from al.com, defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor is no longer enrolled as a student at the university.
Paul Finebaum added that Taylor has been expelled.

Taylor was arrested over the weekend on domestic violence charges.
Despite the fact that Jonathan Taylor’s accuser recanted her accusations against the 6-foot-4, 335-pound defensive lineman, Taylor has been ousted and will be inegible for future readmission.
“Separation of the student from the University permanently or on an indefinite basis. A student permanently expelled is prohibited from reapplying to the University in the future or from earning a degree from any of its colleges or schools. Readmission of a student expelled on an indefinite basis may not occur within five years and shall require the recommendation of the Vice President for Student Affairs and approval of the Provost. If a disciplinary action results in the Judicial Administrator determining that expulsion is the appropriate sanction, then the Vice President for Student Affairs shall review the sanction and shall make the final decision to expel after consultation with the President of the University. Because a decision to expel a student is made after consultation with the President, a student has no right to request a review of the sanction of expulsion.”
Last year, the Georgia Bulldogs released Taylor following a separate domestic violence incident.
