Quarterback Parker McLeod is transferring from Alabama to Western Kentucky and plans to join the team at the start of fall camp, the Daily News confirmed Thursday. McLeod is a 6-foot-3-inch, 195-pounder who graduated from Walton (Ga.) High in 2012 and enrolled early at Alabama in 2013. He did not play for the Crimson Tide last season and opted to wear a redshirt his initial season. In the 2014 Alabama spring game McLeod threw one pass – which was intercepted. Rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.com as a high school senior, McLeod reportedly had scholarship offers from Boston College, Central Florida, East Carolina, Louisville, Maryland, Oklahoma State and Syracuse. He threw for 541 yards and four touchdowns during an injury-shortened senior season and threw for 1,619 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior when WHS finished 14-1 with its lone loss in Georgia’s Class 6A state title game. ESPN ranked him as the nation’s 31st-best pocket passer in 2012.
