Alabama sends classy message to Jalen Hurts after he was drafted by Eagles
Usually, when a player transfers from one school to another, that player isn’t exactly the most popular guy with his former fan base.
That was not the case for Jalen Hurts, who still felt plenty of love from Tuscaloosa after transferring from Alabama to Oklahoma.

Now, we’ll see if his popularity follows him to Philadelphia for the start of his NFL career.
