Alabama’s depth at linebacker appears to be taking a hit as one of the program’s upperclassmen has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

After two seasons in Tuscaloosa, rising junior King Mwikuta has entered the portal database. This news was first reported by Matt Zenitz of On 3 Sports.

Of course, if there’s a position the Crimson Tide could afford to lose a player or two, it’s at linebacker as Alabama projects to have one of the deepest linebacking corps in the nation this season.

Mwikuta played in 11 games for Alabama last season and recorded one tackle. During his freshman season with the program, Mwikuta appeared in 10 games.

The West Point, Ga., native came to Alabama after being selected to play in the 2019 Under Armour All-America Game. Mwikuta was rated as a top 200 overall prospect and the No. 9 weakside defensive end in the country in the 2019 recruiting cycle.
