Jalen Hurts to play his final season at Oklahoma

After compiling a 26-2 mark as Alabama's starting quarterback and rallying the Crimson Tide to a 35-28 victory over Georgia in the 2018 Southeastern Conference championship game, Jalen Hurts announced Wednesday that he would transfer to Oklahoma for his final season of college eligibility.

In last month's Orange Bowl, Alabama backup quarterback Jalen Hurts had one run, one pass and one catch during the 45-34 victory over Oklahoma.

Now, he's going from playing against the Sooners to playing for them.

Hurts announced Wednesday that he will play his final collegiate season as a graduate transfer at the Big 12 power. The past two Oklahoma quarterbacks under head coach Lincoln Riley's guidance have won the Heisman Trophy, with Baker Mayfield claiming college football's top individual honor in 2017 and Kyler Murray doing so this past season.
