Quarterback Blake Barnett, a 5-star recruit, will transfer from the University of Alabama per reports.
Head coach Nick Saban confirmed during his typical Wednesday press conference that he has recently talked to Barnett regarding the player's future, but Saban would not confirm if the transfer is final.
Saban says he will release a statement when he knows the decision is final.
Barnett, who started for the Tide’s opener against the University of Southern California, has spent the majority of the season as the backup to freshman Jalen Hurts.
Barnett was pulled from the USC game in favor of Hurts mid-game.
However, Barnett has seen playing time in 3 of the last 4 games.
Barnett would be the 4th quarterback to transfer from Alabama since 2014.
Cooper Bateman would become the presumed backup quarterback.
