One of Alabama’s reserve offensive linemen won’t be back with the team next year.
Redshirt junior Richie Petitbon plans to transfer after the season, sources told AL.com.
Petitbon, who graduated in May, will be immediately eligible for another school as a graduate transfer.
A former top-65 recruit, Petitbon got set back by a torn ACL in April 2016 but has worked at every position along the offensive line for the Crimson Tide the last two years and has appeared in six games as a reserve this season.
The Maryland native was one of Alabama’s Commitment to Academic Excellence award winners during the spring of 2017.
