A source tells ESPN that Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts has entered his name and information into the NCAA transfer portal.

According to ESPN,

Hurts, a junior, has one year of eligibility remaining. Since he graduated in December, he could transfer and be able to play immediately.
Entering the transfer portal is a necessary step to make him available for contact by other college football programs. While sources indicate Hurts is expected to leave Alabama, entering the portal doesn't lock him into doing so.
