VanDarius Cowan

What does anyone on VN know about the allegedly released Bama LB, VanDarius Cowan? Not sure if wholly true or not nor why if true he was booted. Supposed to be a 4* but wonder if it's worth the Vols seeking to add him to the team.

If they boot a player, it's because he can't play. Nothing else is punishable.

He was dismissed due to a bar incident.. As far as getting him, we would have to trust Pruitt with that decision.

Very talented player, but he can't stay out of trouble.

He had a 6-week drug-related suspension in place for the upcoming season before he was kicked off of the team.

Wasn't he the guy that got sent home during the Opening or a HS All-star game for beating someone up there as well?

Oh boy! If this is true, best Pruitt not even pretend he knows the guy exists. Thems that follow trouble so much that trouble follows them as well, best to stay away from 'em.

There is a video of the bar incident that was the cause of his release. It's hard to see what happened because the bar is packed, but he assaulted another guy. He played 7 games last year as a freshman. He's a talented football player that can't seem to stay out of trouble. We don't need that imo.

No, he was kicked off of his HS team. So he could not play in the All Star game.

Prototypical-sized LB for Pruitt.

VanDarius Cowan, Alabama, Outside Linebacker

Did he get into some of that trouble during or after Pruitt's tenure there? I'm a bit curious how CJP handles these kinds of incidents (i.e., keeps giving 2nd chances, one-and-done, etc.).

Sounds like he's trouble from the get-go and not learning from his behavior or the consequences. The best neutralizing agent for a toxin is not have the toxin available to begin with. I was hoping maybe we'd get lucky with another Kennedyque steal. Guess not.

I don't really understand why people think trying to get this guy to transfer here would be a good idea.

This thread at least, I think the question was if he was worth it. Then subsequently folks stated factors that discouraged the idea. Don't know who as yet is blaring a "Get him!" horn. Least I haven't seen that yet.

Nobody has said it seems like a good idea.

I think there is an SEC rule that doesn't permit schools from accepting dismissed players from other schools.
