TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBMA) - Alabama's Jalen Hurts has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal, according to ESPN.

The move is a necessary step in allowing Hurts to leave the program, but doesn't lock him into a transfer.

Hurts compiled a 26-2 record during his time as a starter at Alabama, but was unseated by QB Tua Tagovailoa entering the 2018 season.

Hurts graduated in December and would be eligible to play immediately should he choose to transfer.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information is made available.
