The Alabama Crimson Tide are gearing up for a run at yet another national title. On Monday night, the Clemson Tigers and Tide will face off once again for the right to call themselves national champions.
These two programs have combined to win the past three national titles and will make it four-straight next week. The Tide are led by quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who took over the starting job from Jalen Hurts in the title game against Georgia last season.
Since then, Hurts has been rumored as a candidate for several top collegiate programs. Instead of transferring, though, he remained with the Tide and helped lead the team to a win over Georgia in the SEC title game.
Will he transfer after the season?
Bleacher Report ranked the possible destinations for Hurts to transfer to. Here’s the top five:
Hurts has an established relationship with new Maryland head coach Mike Locksley after he was Alabama’s offensive coordinator.
The rumor mill will start churning immediately after the College Football Playoff national title game on Monday night as to where Hurts might transfer – if he leaves at all.
