Former Alabama forward Devonta Pollard -- a McDonald’s All-American in 2012 -- will enroll at East Mississippi Community College, according to a report from’s Gary Parrish.

East Mississippi Community College is the only NJCAA school in the country to reach the national tournament four consecutive seasons and will have Pollard for a season after the 6'8" sophomore averaged 3.9 points and 3.1 rebounds per game for the Crimson Tide last season.

Pollard left Alabama in the offseason following an arrest and charges in conjunction with kidnapping a six-year-old girl in a family land dispute. The former Alabama forward still faces a charge of conspiracy to commit kidnapping and, if convicted, he could receive a sentence of up to five years in prison.

It was unclear if Pollard would try to play college basketball this season until now and if he figures out his legal matters, it would be intriguing to see which schools went after the former five-star recruit.
