According to reports by CBS Sports and AL.com, Hurts is now listed in the NCAA transfer portal.

Hurts got into the SEC Championship game when Tagovailoa hurt his ankle and led Alabama to a 35-28 defeat of Georgia.

A dual-threat quarterback, Hurts served as Alabama's starting quarterback in 2016 and 2017 before he was benched this season in favor of sophomore Heisman finalist Tua Tagovailoa.

Jalen Hurts #2 of the Alabama Crimson Tide rolls out to pass against the Mercer Bears at Bryant-Denny Stadium on November 18, 2017 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Many players would have pouted or immediately left the program, but Hurts is unlike any other player to ever wear the Crimson and White.

Hurts - the 2016 SEC offensive player of the year - will be a sought after recruit on the transfer circuit.

Wherever he ends up, it's hard not to root for a guy like Jalen Hurts.

Because he completed his degree at Alabama, Hurts will be eligible to play wherever he wants in 2019.

But now, Hurts is choosing to use his final year of eligibility elsewhere, ostensibly for a program that could use a better starting quarterback next season. Hurts appeared in every game but two for the Tide and threw for 765 yards and eight touchdowns with two interceptions.
