The investigation of Alabama defensive end Marcell Dareus has now been turned over to the highest power…the NCAA.
Tide coach Nick Saban made it clear the status of Dareus will not be found in an “update,” but rather a final verdict.
The Alabama football team will hit the field Thursday morning to begin fall camp in preparation for the 2010 season. Until the NCAA makes a final declaration, Marcell Dareus will be allowed to practice.
The case is not expected (as mentioned in a prior article) to be an institutional issue, but the 2010 eligibility of Dareus could certainly be in question if the NCAA concludes the Tide defensive end committed a rule(s) infraction.
The investigation of Dareus is centered around a party he attended this summer in South Beach/Miami.
