Another Monday practice, little news

Well, another football practice media viewing period is in the books. For the most part, it was more of the same. Here are the biggest story lines I could uncover:

  • Nico Johnson was in the dreaded black non-contact jersey after spraining his left knee in the Friday scrimmage. This is just a guess, but I think he should be fine by September.
  • Joining him in the black shirt club was fellow linebacker Tana Patrick. No word on what the deal was, but it couldn’t be too serious since he was still participating in the drills.
  • According the Gentry Estes of the Mobile Press-Register, Ole Miss will be the Crimson Tide’s homecoming opponent next fall. 
  • Finally, here is a video of a drill I don’t think I’ve videoed the defensive line doing yet. These videos are getting repetitive. But to be honest, it’s all we ever get to see. Enjoy. 

Football recruit Nico Johnson acquitted

The Mobile Press Register is reporting Alabama star football recruit Nico Johnson has been found not guilty of a verbal harassment charge.

The five-star recruit was charged by a classmate earlier this month (read this) but the accusations sounded flimsy from the beginning.

Reports: Tide recruit Nico Johnson arrested

Alabama football recruit Nico Johnson was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of harassment in his hometown of Andalusia, according to several news reports.

The Star News of Andalusia had the following in its crime blotter “Nico Johnson on a misdemeanor charge of harassment after a verbal, non-physical altercation with another male. He was released on a $500 bond.”

Johnson is a five-star recruit according to who also rated him the No. 2 middle linebacker in the class of 2009.

Check back for more details as they emerge.
