The elder Pickett also iterated that his son’s recent suspension from Alabama’s basketball team for a “failure to comply with team rules” has nothing to do with academics.
“He told them that he wanted to leave. They told him they weren’t going to release him. This is their way of fighting back, saying that he is suspended for academic reasons,” his father said. “He has the same grades that he has had since he has been at Alabama.”
Added Pickett’s father, “He is transferring. That is a fact. You heard it from me.”
