Multiple sources have reported that Alabama redshirt freshman quarterback Blake Barnett is transferring and has left the program. Per AL.com:
quote:Barnett was rated the No. 2 pro-style quarterback in the 2015 recruiting class. He is from Corona, CA.
While the former five-star recruit opened the season as the Tide's starter, he was pulled following the second series of that opening game in favor of freshman Jalen Hurts.
Barnett had been Hurts' backup since that first game.
Barnett appeared in three of the first four games. He was 11 of 19 for 219 yards with two touchdown passes and no interceptions, including 4 of 7 for 55 yards with a touchdown during Alabama's 48-0 win over Kent State on Saturday.
