Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts has announced that he is transferring to Oklahoma as a graduate senior and will most likely be the starter for the Sooners going into next season.
Hurts wrote a piece for The Players Tribune, in which he stated:
‘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.
I’m very fortunate to have this opportunity, and I’m excited for the journey ahead.’
Hurts was reportedly considering Maryland and Miami, before settling on OU.
