Alabama wasn’t able to land a quarterback in its most recent recruiting class, so it appears the Crimson Tide are taking a swing at the graduate transfer tree. Citing unnamed sources, al.com is reporting that Alabama is in hot pursuit of Gardner Minshew. That pursuit falls in line with Nick Saban stating after National Signing Day that he would likely add another player to the quarterback room prior to the start of summer camp. On Jan. 30, East Carolina announced that Minshew had withdrawn from school to tend to a personal matter in his home state of Mississippi. At the time, Pirates head coach Scottie Montgomery stated “[t]he door will certainly remain open for him to return to ECU.”
