Lewis not to return

HUNTSVILLE | University of Alabama tight end Brandon Lewis will not return to the UA football team this fall, coach Nick Saban said Tuesday.

"Brandon did not finish spring practice, and has elected not to return for his final year of eligibility," Saban said prior to a Crimson Caravan speaking engagement.

Lewis transferred to UA from East Mississippi Community College two seasons ago. He was a reserve defensive lineman in 2010 and was moved to tight end last year.

Lewis competed in spring practice this year as a tight and had lost more than 20 pounds in an effort to help himself in the role, according to teammates. He did not participate on A-Day, however, and was not listed on either A-Day squad roster.

Saban was also asked about suspended wide receivers Duron Carter, Michael Bowman and Ronald Carswell, but indicated the status of the trio had not changed.

"It's not up to me, it's up to them," Saban said of the possibility of their return. "I had two adolescents at home, and could not predict what they were going to do. I can't predict what those guys are going to do, either."
