Former Alabama QB Layne Hatcher reportedly entered the NCAA transfer portal on Monday, and it didn’t take him long to find a new school.

Per a tweet from, Hatcher is heading back to a program that had a lot of interest in him during the 2018 recruiting cycle.

Per the tweets, Hatcher will play at Arkansas State moving forward — the school he was committed to before he received an Alabama offer:

Hatcher didn’t appear in any games for the Tide in 2018, redshirting behind starting QB Tua Tagovailoa and backups Jalen Hurts and Mac Jones.

Now, he’ll return to a school he knows well and try to find his way into more playing time moving forward.
