On the day before the Fourth of July, one member of the Alabama Crimson Tide declared his independence from Nick Saban‘s squad.

In a couple of tweets posted to his Twitter account, Brandon Hill revealed that he has been granted a release from his UA scholarship. There was no word on to where the rising redshirt sophomore offensive lineman may transfer.

We would also be remiss in not noting that the school has yet to address Hill’s status with the team.
