Former starting Alabama QB Jalen Hurts just announced he’ll no longer be playing for the Crimson Tide.
In a letter posted by The Players’ Tribune, the Hurts will suit up for his last collegiate season at the University of Oklahoma as a graduate transfer.
“Now, I’m an alumnus of the University of Alabama.
Now I’m Bama for LIFE – and that right there will never change!
But now it’s also time for me to start a new chapter in my story.
I’ve decided to take my talents to the University of Oklahoma, where I will continue my development as both a quarterback and as a student.”
Hurts’ time at Alabama was prolific on paper but to many critics, incomplete.
As a freshman, he won the SEC Player Of The Year and left Alabama with a 26-2 record as a starter.
Hurts was the starting QB for Bama in 2017, but his role and subsequent benching in favor of fellow QB Tua Tagovailoa during the year’s National Championship Game, seal his fate.
The Sooners just lost their Heisman winning QB to either the MLB or NFL. With Hurts coming onboard, the rich continue to get richer.
