Redshirt freshman quarterback Parker McCleod has Alabama's blessing to scope out transfer possibilities, coach Nick Saban told reporters Tuesday at the SEC's spring meetings.

BamaOnline first reported the news of McLeod's impending transfer.

McLeod would be the fifth quarterback signed by Saban to end his career at Alabama via transfer.

McLeod, a three-star prospect from Marietta, Ga., enrolled early in 2013 and primarily worked as a scout-team quarterback. As Alabama evaluated candidates to replace longtime starter AJ McCarron throughout the spring, McLeod's name was rarely mentioned. His one pass at last month's A-Day game was intercepted.
