Former Carver standout turning pro

Posted: Updated:

Former Carver High standout running back Isaiah Crowell will forego his senior season at Alabama State and enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

Alabama State head coach Reggie Barlow announced the move after the Hornets' 41-28 win over Stillman.

Highly recruited out of Carver, Crowell spent his freshman year at the University of Georgia, where he ran for 850 yards and five touchdowns. However, the summer following his freshman season, he was arrested for three weapons chargers and subsequently dismissed from the team.

The charges were dropped this April.

Crowell then spent the next two years at Alabama State in Montgomery, where he ran for 1,962 career yards, including 1,121 this season.

He played just one quarter against Stillman, carrying the ball seven times for 32 yards before being taken out as a precaution due to a lingering ankle injury.
