TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama offensive lineman Aaron Douglas
has died in Florida.
The university's athletic department confirmed that the
21-year-old Douglas died Thursday but had no further details.
The former Tennessee starter spent last season at Arizona
Western Community College and transferred to play for the Crimson
Tide in January. According to his Twitter feed, Douglas had been in
the Jacksonville, Fla., area this week.
Douglas had tweeted at 11:36 p.m. CDT Wednesday asking "Anybody
still up right now?!?"
Tide coach Nick Saban says Douglas was "an outstanding young
man and we were excited about what he had accomplished as a player
and a person in the short time he was with us."
Douglas, from Maryville, Tenn., transferred after the Volunteers
hired coach Derek Dooley.
