Alabama junior wide receiver Chris Black announced via Twitter Monday that he has been granted his full release and plans to transfer.

Black, the former elite four-star wide receiver, is from Jacksonville, Florida, and he caught two passes for 23 yards in six games after undergoing season-ending ankle surgery in November. He will finish his Alabama football career with 25 receptions for 290 yards and two touchdowns.

The wide receiver was rated as the No. 6 player at his position and No. 46 overall player during the 2012 recruiting cycle.
