Two days, two transfers from Alabama. In football. This time it is offensive tackle Charles Baldwin. For a line desperately needing any type of warm body, the sight of a 5 star prospect who was rated as the #1JuCo recruit in the class of 2016 is a sight to behold indeed. Baldwin will sit this year and then have 2 more years of eligibility as a Jayhawk.
Originally from Connecticut, Baldwin had 10 offers coming out of Junior College in New York, choosing Alabama over notables such as Miami, Oklahoma, Michigan State, and Georgia.
Baldwin was dismissed from Bama in May for an unspecified violation of team rules. In March, Alabama head coach Nick Saban said that Baldwin was a candidate to get reps at right tackle and is a very good athlete with a lot of ability. Clearly he will be the favorite to start as a tackle next season for the Jayhawks.
