DeAndrew White hospitalized after fight
By Edward Aschoff
Alabama redshirt sophomore wide receiver DeAndrew White was one of two victims hospitalized overnight after sustaining injuries during an early Thursday altercation on The Strip in Tuscaloosa, Ala., a source close to the situation confirmed to the Tuscaloosa Bureau.
The source told the Tuscaloosa Bureau that White wasn't seriously injured, but did sustain a concussion.
There's no word yet on how White was involved in the fight, but university police arrested two men for firing handguns in the air during the fight, "allegedly to disperse the crowd," Tuscaloosa Metro Homicide Unit commander Loyd Baker said.
White, who caught 14 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns, had a pretty productive spring and is expected to contribute even more this fall in Alabama's offense. Alabama hopes he can develop into a more reliable deep threat with his speed and explosiveness.
