 Draft Scout Player News
01/09/19 - Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts has taken an important step toward transferring. Hurts entered his name into the NCAA transfer database portal on Wednesday, two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the NCAA list is not publicly accessible. Putting his name on the list allows other schools to contact Hurts, who has already graduated and is eligible to play his final season as a graduate transfer. It's not a binding decision to transfer. Hurts, a dual threat as a runner and passer, will likely be a hot commodity. He was a two-year starter who led Alabama to a pair of national championship games and was Southeastern Conference offensive player of the year as a freshman. Alabama lost to Clemson in the national championship game Monday night.

Hurts is likely to join other high-profile quarterbacks in moving to other schools. Georgia freshman Justin Fields , who had been one of the nation's top recruits, has enrolled at Ohio State and former Clemson starter Kelly Bryant picked Missouri. Hurts has not publicly discussed his plans beyond this season. Before the Tide's semifinal game against Oklahoma he would only offer "my story's still unfolding. Just wait to see what's next." Asked ahead of the title game, Hurts had nothing to say. He turned and walked away. He became even more popular with Alabama fans for staying put and contributing to the offense throughout the season. If Hurts had played in four games or fewer, he could have preserved a second year of eligibility. "I think a lot of people recognize the fact that he put the team first," Alabama coach Nick Saban said before the playoffs. - AP College Football

09/29/18 - QB Jalen Hurts cannot redshirt this season after he was inserted into Saturday's matchup for the top-ranked Crimson Tide against overmatched Louisiana, marking the fifth game he has appeared in this season. Per a new NCAA rule this season, a player can appear in as many as four games and still qualify for a redshirt season. A report by the Athletic earlier this month suggested Hurts was planning to take that route due to his frustration over the quarterback controversy and how it was handled by the team's coaching staff. Tua Tagovailoa supplanted Hurts as the starter this season, but Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said he still plans to take advantage of Hurts' skill set
09/08/18 - QB quarterback Jalen Hurts, relegated to a backup role, is planning to redshirt this season and transfer, according to a report. Hurts, who guided the Crimson Tide to the national championship game last season, has an agreement in place with the school to take a redshirt as long as starter Tua Tagovailoa stays healthy, reported Aaron Suttles of the Athletic. A new rule this season allows a player to appear in as many as four games and still qualify for a redshirt season. According to the report, if Hurts opts for that route, he could still depart the university after the season as a graduation transfer and retain two seasons of eligibility.
08/31/18 - QB Jalen Hurts and QB Tua Tagovailoa will both in Alabama's opener against Louisville on Saturday, Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said Friday. Hurts has led Alabama to 26 wins in his 28 career starts spanning three seasons, but Tagovailoa rallied the Crimson Tide to a victory over Georgia in last season's national championship game as a true freshman. Both have received equal reps in preseason practices. "I think we have two guys that are weapons, and they've both played well, so the plan is to play both guys in the game," Saban told ESPN's Chris Fowler in an interview. "So the only issue is who plays first, and we'll decide that when the time comes."
08/04/18 - QB Jalen Hurts is competing with Tua Tagovailoa for the starting job at Alabama but is frustrated with how the competition is being handled. Speaking for reporters for the first time since getting benched at halftime of the national championship game against Georgia in January, Hurts said he is annoyed by what he said are "rumors", "speculation" and "people making decisions for me." Hurts also said he was "shocked" when coach Nick Saban said at SEC media days that he had "no idea" if Hurts would be on the roster for the season opener against Louisville on Sept. 1 in Orlando. After the comments, Saban and Hurts met to clear the air. Hurts said he was intent on staying and graduating in December regardless if he was starting.
