Alabama's Jalen Hurts is reportedly in the transfer portal, according to Barton Simmons of CBS Sports, a strong indication that the quarterback will transfer from the Crimson Tide this offseason.

The news doesn't come as a major surprise, as Hurts saw his starting position usurped by Heisman runner-up Tua Tagovailoa ahead of the 2018 season.

Tagovailoa thrived as the starter, throwing for 3,966 yards, 43 scores and six interceptions and leading Alabama to the College Football Playoff title game, where the Crimson Tide were blown out by Clemson.

Hurts played his part, though, most notably entering the SEC Championship Game against Georgia in the fourth quarter after an injury forced Tagovailoa out of action with the Crimson Tide trailing by a touchdown.

Hurts promptly led two touchdown drives, earning an SEC title for Alabama and sending the team back to the College Football Playoff.
