Report: Jalen Hurts visits Oklahoma day after Maryland
Jalen Hurts is a busy man on the transfer circuit.
Hurts entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal during the week, indicating his intention to transfer from Alabama. The quarterback, who has one year of college eligibility left and could transfer immediately as a grad transfer, is already taking visits.
On Friday night, Hurts was spotted with former Alabama offensive coordinator Mike Locksley at a Maryland-Indiana game. Locksley was named Maryland’s new head coach.

In addition to Maryland and Oklahoma, Hurts has also been connected to Miami.
Hurts was Alabama’s starter as a true freshman in 2016 and took them to the national championship, where they lost to Clemson. A year later he started over Tua Tagovailoa until being relieved by the backup in the second half of the championship game, where they came back to beat Georgia. Hurts became the backup in 2018, though he saw enough game action to account for 10 touchdowns and help Bama beat Georgia in the SEC Championship Game.
