As Nick Saban has said, and weâ€™ve repeated, scholarship numbers work themselves out. Hereâ€™s the latest. Cornerback Lionel Mitchell was placed on medical scholarship due to a back injury, according to media reports. Ian Rapoport helpfully updates the on scholarship countâ€”it is now 64.
Saban’s meeting with the local press today included this tidbit: Brandon Lewis won’t be joining the Tide this fall. He appears headed for junior college.
