Alabama: Defensive lineman LaBryan Ray has been arrested on a public intoxication charge. Tuscaloosa Police spokeswoman Lt. Teena Richardson says Ray was arrested Friday at about 7 p.m. after refusing to leave an establishment at Midtown Village. Security detained him until police arrived.
Ray was a backup last season as a sophomore but had 39 tackles, six tackles for loss and 21⁄ sacks. The former fivestar recruit from Madison, Alabama, is likely to contend for a starting role next season with Quinnen Williams and Isaiah Buggs leaving.
Cornerback Saivion Smith is entering the NFL draft. He is the fifth Crimson Tide underclassmen to turn pro this week.
