Crimson Tide's Davis cleared by NCAA

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WAFF) - Nick Saban and Alabama have another weapon at their disposal on defense. He's 6 feet 7 inches and 330 pounds.

Mississippi native Raekwon Davis is cleared by the NCAA and is eligible immediately to play for Alabama. Davis, a four-star recruit in last year's recruiting cycle should be ready to contribute this season.

"Just another guy in the rotation," said Alabama defensive lineman Dalvin Thomlinson. "He's been working hard. Just like any other defensive lineman, he deserves to get out there."

"You know last week when we started game prep, we did not prep him with the defense. He played on scout team," said Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban. "This week he got some reps. Today we knew that he will be eligible. he did rep some with the defense. We'll do everything we can to get him ready to play."

Alabama hosts Western Kentucky on Saturday.
