Nick Saban names the 1 position that Alabama could look to add to its roster
The Alabama Crimson Tide are losing TEs Irv Smith Jr. (NFL Draft) and Hale Hentges (graduation) this offseason, so they’ll need to find a replacement before the 2019 season.
With how busy the NCAA Transfer Portal has been this offseason, it’s possible the Tide could bring in a graduate transfer before Week 1 to fill that spot.
On Wednesday, coach Nick Saban did say that the Tide would have their eyes on transfer tight ends as spring ball approaches:
Saban on where Alabama might look for transfer help after NSD: "If we saw some opportunity to get a more seasoned player out there at (tight end), that's something we could look at."

With QB Tua Tagovailoa returning, finding a reliable outlet at the tight end position will be crucial.
We’ll see if the Tide can find someone to fill this role, and perhaps Saban’s comments on Wednesday will spark a grad transfer to check out Tuscaloosa.
