Reports have begun to surface that former five-star running back prospect Camar Wheaton is no longer enrolled at Alabama and is unlikely to return to the Crimson Tide. The reason for Wheaton’s departure has not yet been released.
Wheaton was regarded as one of the top backs in the country when he signed with the Tide as a part of the 2021 class.
Due to a knee injury, Wheaton did not see any action as a true freshman in Tuscaloosa. Head coach Nick Saban last provided an update on Wheaton back in November. “Camar Wheaton’s still rehabbing,” Saban said. “He’s not on the field yet. He’s got a ways to go.”
Chris Hummer of 247Sports was the first to report on the news.
