Alabama dismisses top JUCO prospect Charles Baldwin

On Thursday, Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban announced dismissed offensive lineman Charles Baldwin.

Entering the season, Baldwin, a four-star JUCO offensive tackle recruit, was expected to compete for a starting job for the defending national champions. Unfortunately, he was instead dismissed for the general “violation of team rules.”

It was a clear blown opportunity for Baldwin.

Baldwin,  6-foot-5, 297-pounds, was the No. 2 JUCO prospect in the Class of 2016. Unfortunately, he will have to look to take his collegiate career to the next level elsewhere.
