DT D.J. Pettway Returns To Alabama After February Robbery Arrest
Nick Saban got another huge letter of intent on Wednesday night, and it was from a guy who’s probably going to play right away.
According to Yahoo Sports Junior defensive tackle D.J. Pettway has signed a letter of intent to return to Alabama almost a year after he and three other players were kicked out of school for allegedly robbing and beating two fellow Alabama students.
After a season at East Mississippi Community College, Pettway tweeted about signing with Alabama again.

Pettway was granted youthful offender status to end the legal process.
