Alabama QB Jalen Hurts visits Maryland amid potential transfer

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts is exploring his transfer options this weekend, and that reportedly includes a visit to Oklahoma.

Hurts hasn't commented on which schools he may be considering, but Miami is likely another with former Alabama quarterbacks Dan Enos named the Hurricanes' offensive coordinator on Friday. There has been no official word from his camp, either.

Hurts would be a major get for the Terrapins in Locksley's first season, and in a relatively weak ACC (outside of Clemson), Maryland would be an instant contender to improve upon their mediocre 5-7 record from 2018.

Hurts played mostly in garbage time for Alabama this season, but looked good in his limited opportunities.

But as Lee Corso would say, "not so fast, my friend". Hurts had been Alabama's starter for the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Despite all of that, Hurts hasn't let on if he is even leaving Tuscaloosa. He is already enrolled in the graduate program at Alabama, so it wouldn't be hard for him to stay and it may be telling that he hasn't officially said he was leaving. Hurts led the Crimson Tide to back-to-back College Football Playoff appearances before losing the starting quarterback job to Tua Tagovailoa.

He still played in 13 games, completing 51 of 70 pass attempts (72.9 percent) for 765 yards and eight touchdowns, with two interceptions, plus had 36 rushing attempts for 167 yards and two more scores.
