Former Alabama defensive lineman Antonio Alfano has announced his intention to leave his second school. Alfano made the announcement on his social media that he will leave the University of Colorado, enter the transfer portal and search for a new school.

Alfano came to Tuscaloosa as a five-star recruit out of New Jersey, he was ranked as the No. 1 recruit in the state and the fifth ranked recruit in the nation. The defensive lineman enrolled early to participate in the Crimson Tide spring program in 2019.

Alfano secured two sacks in the 2019 A Day game, went through summer workouts and fall camp with the Tide before he stopped attending class in September. Coach Nick Saban said the lineman "kind of disappeared for little bit."

Alfano was apparently struggling with his grandmother's failing health while at Alabama. He ended up transferring and enrolling at Colorado in January 2020 to play for Mel Tucker. Tucker subsequently left the Buffaloes to take the Michigan State job and Colorado hired Coach Dorrell.

The 6-foot-4, 285-pound defensive lineman was suspended by new Buffaloes coach Karl Dorrell in March for violation of team rules in March of last year and did not play in 2020.

Alfano has yet to take a collegiate snap and will now be moving to his third university. While in high school the talented defensive lineman played for three different schools, he played two seasons at Bergen Catholic, his junior year at Rahway High School and his senior year at Colonia High School.
