One of the uglier things in the college football world is the transfer market. College coaches can bolt for wherever they please without penalty, but players must sit out a year if they choose to leave their school for another FBS school. The school that the player is leaving may also choose to block the player from transferring within the conference or to a future opponent.

It appears that Nick Saban and Alabama are doing just that to Brandon Kennedy, who announced his intention to transfer this week.

According to Matt Zenitz of AL.com, Alabama has in fact put that block on Kennedy, who is reportedly interested in joining Tennessee or Auburn. Kennedy graduated from Alabama back in December so he will be eligible to play immediately at his new school.

The SEC and/or Alabama should let Brandon Kennedy transfer wherever. The schools at the top of his list are Tennessee and Auburn, according to various reports . He graduated from Alabama in December.

The former four-star recruit was projected to be Alabama’s second team center in 2018. According to Zenitz’s report, Kennedy is in the process of appealing the block.

This is definitely a situation worth following as Kennedy could be a potential fix up front for the Volunteers. The Jeremy Pruitt-Alabama connection could put Tennessee in the driver’s seat here. First things first, Kennedy will have to get clearance to even talk to Tennessee or Auburn.
