Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts is transferring to Oklahoma. Hurts was a two-year starter at Alabama, before losing his job to Heisman Trophy runner-up Tua Tagovailoa.
Hurts announced his decision in a story on The Players' Tribune.
Hurts said, "Commitment. Discipline. Effort. Toughness. Pride. Those are the five commandments of Alabama football. Those are the five commandments that have been instilled in me, and that have defined me, for the past three years. And as I write this letter, I find myself drawing on those commandments one more time." Hurts went on to say, "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 will be treated as a graduate transfer and will be available to play this coming season.
