Jalen Hurts reportedly makes his third recruiting visit of the weekend
Jalen Hurts has really been earning himself some frequent flyer miles his week.
The Alabama graduate transfer has visited Maryland, Oklahoma and now it’s being reported that Hurts is in Miami Sunday evening just days after entering his name in the NCAA’s transfer portal. Of course, Miami recently hired former Alabama QB coach Dan Enos to serve as Manny Diaz’s first offensive coordinator.
Miami makes a ton of sense for Hurts should he decide following Enos is in his best interest.
Hurts’ latest visit to South Florida is being reported by Manny Navarro of The Athletic.
The 2016 SEC Offensive Player of the Year leaves Alabama after passing for 5,626 yards, 48 touchdowns and only 12 interceptions during his three seasons on the field. He also completed 62.9 percent of his passes and rushed for 1,976 yards and an additional 23 touchdowns for the Tide.
After losing his starting job entering his junior season, Hurts played in a reserve role behind Tua Tagovailoa in 2018. However, instead of being a distraction to Alabama’s efforts, he remained a leader for Nick Saban’s program and was the catalyst for Alabama’s comeback win over Georgia in the 2018 SEC Championship Game.
