Former Alabama running back Altee Tenpenny has once again proven that he can’t stay out of trouble as he has been suspended from Nicholls State University.
Houmatoday.com reported that Tenpenny was arrested Sunday for “possession of a firearm and discharging a weapon,” and Michael Casagrande of AL.com confirmed the report that Tenpenny was indeed on indefinite suspension.
Given how Nicholls State is the third school in less than a year for Tenpenny, it’s a pretty safe bet that his college football career on the Division I level could very well be over. He first arrived at Alabama in 2013 as a four-star recruit out of Arkansas’ North Little Rock High School, but transferred to UNLV last January due to being buried on the depth chart behind Kenyan Drake and Derrick Henry.
Tenpenny was subsequently dismissed from UNLV back in August for violating team rules and landed at Nicholls State later in the month.
Now, it appears that Tenpenny can’t even keep his head screwed on straight enough to an FCS team’s standards, which is a whole new low for him. Just what his next step is remains to be seen, but odds are his football days are over. If that is indeed the case, what a waste of talent.
Campus Sports will update Tenpenny’s story as it develops.
