Why Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts transferring to Oklahoma?

The easy money is on Lincoln Riley and the head coach’s success with transfer quarterbacks. Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray’s college paths began outside of Norman and ended with College Football Playoff appearances and Heisman Trophy seasons. Hurts announced his intention to transfer from Alabama to Oklahoma on Wednesday in a lengthy Players Tribune note penned to Crimson Tide fans. As a graduate transfer, Hurts will immediately be eligible. He’ll inherit an offense that has plenty of talent at the skill positions (including three incoming five-star wide receivers). He will also have to work behind a retooled offensive line. “I’ve decided to take my talents to the University of Oklahoma, where I will continue my development as both a quarterback and as a student,” Hurts said in the letter. “I’m very fortunate to have this opportunity, and I’m excited for the journey ahead.” Hurts also introduced himself to Oklahoma. “So to my about-to-be family in Norman, I truly appreciate you for bringing me on board. Y’all don’t know me yet but just, for now, to introduce myself: I’m a motivated coach’s son from the Eastside of Houston, and I love to play ball,” Hurts said.
