But he also said he would sign a piece of paper to show that they are keeping their word – they are going to sign it and they want me to sign it to make sure I know I still have my scholarship.” [Emphasis added.]
So this kid believes he’s going to get some sort of binding commitment from Alabama for a scholarship in a year’s time. I can’t wait to hear from the NCAA about that. (Not to mention every school in the SEC.)
I said most interesting, because that’s not the only eye-popping comment this kid made. Check this out:
“He said I’m going to stay in Georgia. They are going to find me a job. I’m going to work. I’m going to physical therapy at least seven days per week. I guess I will work, go to physical therapy and get strong … I will come in with the class of 2013. I’ll get there with the early group so I can do winter workouts and spring football.”
Trent Richardson and Booster:
Trent Richardson and Former Alabama Booster Relationship?

Okay, I’ll preface this post by making it clear we have NO OPINION on this matter, but that at the very least its entertaining to dream up these scenarios brought to us courtesy of SportsbyBrooks. Normally we try to stay away from the NCAA rumor mill, but figured this time we’d led you be the judge about what to make about this, if anything.
Brooks has been on Alabama’s tail all summer about possible NCAA violations, most of which were tied to T-Town Menswear owner Tom Albetar,which Alabama disassociated from last year. Whether or not any of it is true remains to be seen because the NCAA has yet to lend a firm hand in that mess.
The latest controversial claims by Brooks is that a disassociated Alabama booster had a relationship with Alabama running back Trent Richardson. Oh Brooks, you really must hate Alabama!
“WHAT THE? Why would disassociated Alabama booster have photo of Trent Richardson birthday cake? Is it unreasonable to think that Richardson may have received a gift or three from that same disassociated booster if he was at a Richardson birthday function? Seriously, am I being unreasonable asking that question?”
If you are a Alabama booster you better not talk ..or ELSE!!!
ESPN is reporting that “A man found dead Tuesday in a Memphis home is believed to be Logan Young, an Alabama booster convicted of bribing a high school football coach to get a top recruit for the Crimson Tide.”
Police are investigating the case as a homicide. They have not yet confirmed the body was Young, but the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported on its Web site Tuesday that that detectives were working at a house where Young’s body was found. “We’re treating it as a mystery homicide,” Sgt. Vince Higgins told The Associated Press. He said officials assume the victim was Young but needed to use fingerprints and dental records to confirm the identity. “Suffice it to say, there was quite a physical struggle in this and this individual was injured severely,” he said.
Nashville attorney Jim Neal, who defended Young, said he had been told the body was found by a housekeeper. “I’ve had two or three calls about it, all to the same end, found killed in his home. … I heard that there was blood everywhere. That is all I know,” Neal said. Higgins said Young’s housekeeper found the body after she arrived for work this morning. The body had not been removed from the house and no family members immediately arrived at the house.
The 65-year-old Young was convicted under federal law of money laundering and racketeering conspiracy in the case involving the peddling of defensive lineman Albert Means. Young was sentenced in June to six months in prison and six months of home confinement then two years of supervised release. But he had been allowed to remain free pending his appeal.
