Multiple sources are reporting that Redshirt freshman quarterback Parker McCleod will transfer from Alabama. Nick Saban confirmed the news with reporters on Tuesday at the SEC's spring meetings. Per AL.com
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.
McLeod is 6-3, 193-pounds and was the country’s No. 37 pro-style quarterback out Walton High School in Marietta, GA. He choose Alabama over Maryland, UCF, Boston College, Oklahoma State and Louisville.
Alabama will now have five scholarship quarterbacks on the team this season which includes senior Blake Sims, junior Jacob Coker, sophomore Alec Morris, redshirt freshman Cooper Bateman and freshman David Cornwell.
