LOOK: Fans around the country now begging Jalen Hurts to transfer to their school
Jalen Hurts may not have won the starting QB job at Alabama, but fans of other schools are making it known they would welcome the Crimson Tide QB with open arms.
Nick Saban never announced who the starter would be before game time. Instead, everyone found out that Tua Tagovailoa had won the job when he trotted out for the opening snap of the game against Louisville.
It also did not take long for Tagovailoa to show why he won the starting job. He led the Tide to a touchdown on the opening drive, capped by some nifty footwork and a touchdown throw by the sophomore QB. He also added a rushing touchdown later in the first quarter.
Tagovailoa’s early work has been impressive, and the chances of Hurts taking significant snaps with the Tide continue to get slimmer. If Hurts’ time is done with the Crimson Tide, fans of other college football teams want the QB to know they would be happy to have him:

Hurts could certainly just ride out his time with the Tide, but the new redshirt rule in the NCAA means Hurts could play in up to four games this season and keep his year of eligibility.
