Created on Jun. 21, 2014 12:56 PM EST

Butch Jones has landed another highly touted running back — this time it's Alvin Kamara, by the way of Alabama and Hutchinson Community College.


Kamara was at Alabama a season ago, before being granted a release from the Crimson Tide. 

Kamara led Norcross (GA) to the Class AAAAAA Georgia state championship. He rushed for 2,264 yards and 26 touchdowns and chose Alabama over Georgia on National Signing Day 2013. 

Kamara did not see the field during his freshman year at Alabama. He was suspended twice — for behavioral reasons alongside an undisclosed violation. 

Here is a highlight video of the new Tennessee back:
