Former Alabama receiver Chris Black may not be in Tuscaloosa next season, but he’ll be in the same conference.

Black, who announced his intention to transfer from Alabama back on Dec. 7 just two days after the team’s 29-15 win against Florida in the SEC Championship Game, will be playing for Missouri in 2016, confirmed.

The 6-foot, 192-pounder has already graduated, meaning he will be able to use his final year of eligibility next season with the Tigers.

Black was a four-star prospect out of Jacksonville, Fla., in 2012. He saw limited time with the Crimson Tide, only recording 2 catches for 23 yards last season, all in the team’s win over Louisiana-Monroe on Sept. 26. Injuries played a factor in that as he only saw action in six games in 2015.

Before deciding on his next destination, Black said his next school would hopefully be a school “that knows how to utilize a slot guy,” according to

“I always felt like the system didn’t fit my type of skill set,” Black said. “I feel like I’ve been caged for these past three years. Now, I’m ready to break out.”

Black later said his words weren’t accurately portrayed.

Missouri is not scheduled to face Alabama next season, and it could only face the Tide in a potential rematch of the 2014 SEC title game.
