LSU LB K’Lavon Chaisson calls Jalen Hurts ‘most disrespected QB’ in college football history
K’Lavon Chaisson may have been part of a dominating win over Oklahoma on Saturday, but that does not diminish the LSU linebacker’s respect for Jalen Hurts. Not even close.
In fact, Chaisson on Twitter called Hurts the “most disrespected QB in college football history”.

Hurts took Alabama to the national championship game as a true freshman, then was benched for Tua Tagovailoa in the title game the following year, sat behind Tua as a junior, and then transferred to Oklahoma as a senior and became a Heisman Trophy finalist. Hurts also led the Sooners to the College Football Playoff.
Despite all his success and accomplishments, many probably do not view Hurts as elite. He was an excellent college quarterback, but he is not on the level of say Joe Burrow or Kyler Murray, and Bama thought he wasn’t as good as Tagovailoa. But none of that takes away from how well liked Hurts is, including by some of his opponents.
