VanDarius Cowan was a four-star prospect and the No. 4 outside linebacker in the country in the class of 2017 when he signed at Alabama. But now, he's looking for a new home.A 

Alabama announced Monday that Cowan has been dismissed from the program.

"VanDarius has been dismissed from the team and is no longer a part of our football program due to a violation of team rules," coach Nick Saban said in a statement. "Each of us has a responsibility to represent The University of Alabama in a first-class way, and failure to meet those standards can't be tolerated. We wish VanDarius the very best in the future."

Cowan was arrested and charged with third-degree assault for an incident last month outside of a Tuscaloosa bar.

He missed part of spring practice to focus on an academic situation, despite the fact that he was a contender for playing time.
