Alabama-Birmingham suspended running back Kingston Davis indefinitely on Thursday.

Davis, who played one year at the University of Michigan, was disciplined due to an unspecified student-conduct issue, according to the school.

“Kingston Davis has been placed on interim suspension from UAB pending a student conduct investigation,” the university’s athletic department said in a statement released Thursday. “Due to federal student privacy laws, the institution cannot disclose details at this time.”

Davis transferred from Michigan to Independence Community College in Kansas during the spring and wound up featured on the Netflix show “Last Chance U.”

The 6-foot, 240-pound Davis, considered among the nation’s top recruits at fullback coming out of high school in 2016, made the decision to transfer to UAB in the summer.

Davis played in all three games for the Blazers this season, rushing for 88 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries. He had a season-high 47 yards on six carries at Coastal Carolina on Sept. 8.

At Michigan, Davis appeared in only one game as a freshman in 2016, rushing for 17 yards on two carries.

During the suspension, Davis will not be allowed to participate in any athletic activities for UAB (2-1), which hosts Charlotte on Saturday.
