Antonio Alfano Out at Colorado
Former Crimson Tide defensive lineman, Antonio Alfano, has let his second college football program. According to Colorado University, Alfano is no longer enrolled at school in Boulder. The 6-foot-4, 285-pound defensive lineman was suspended by new Buffaloes coach Karl Dorrell in March for violation of team rules and now the lineman has left the university entirely.
Alfano came to Tuscaloosa as a five-star recruit out of New Jersey, he was ranked as the number one 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. 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.
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.
The USA Today High School All-American and Army All-American was recruited by all the top programs in the nation. What school will take a chance on him next remains a mystery.
