Former Alabama defender, All-SEC selection, transfers to USC
Former Alabama linebacker Shane Lee has transferred to the USC Trojans, the school announced Sunday night.
Lee entered the NCAA transfer portal on January 13th, and he’s found a new home out west. The Baltimore, Maryland, native was an All-SEC selection in 2009, recording 86 tackles, including 6.5 for loss, 2 forced fumbles and an INT. In 2021, Lee played in 11 games making just 7 tackles.
Exiting high school, Lee was a 4-star prospect and ranked as the nation’s No. 78 overall prospect in the class of 2019, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.

USC, on the other hand, is dominating the transfer portal so far. In addition to Lee, Lincoln Riley has landed several standouts — former Oregon running back Travis Dye, former Oklahoma wide receiver Mario Williams, former Colorado wide receiver Brenden Rice, former Colorado cornerback Mekhi Blackmon and former OU cornerback Latrell McCutchin, among others.
Riley and USC needed immediate help, and he’s transformed the roster in a short amount of time.
