Alabama redshirt senior LB Keith Holcombe has quit football in order to focus on baseball.
"He's always wanted to play baseball. He's had an opportunity to play baseball, and we decided to give him the opportunity to go full-time in baseball this year," Tide HC Nick Saban said, explaining that Holcombe had the option to potentially give it a go as a two-sport athlete, but that the redshirt senior declined on the football side. So baseball it is, now. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder was an active performer for the defending champs last season, recording 38 tackles, but Saban and his staff have been anticipating his departure for some time, as Holcombe did not take part in spring practice. His loss thins an already thin depth chart at inside linebacker. The team should be OK for now, but if Dylan Moses or Mack Wilson were to suffer injury upcoming, the lack of depth might start to become problematic. Jul 19 - 2:11 PM
