There's a mass exodus occurring at Alabama, and none of us saw it coming. Jalen Hurts is the biggest name leaving Tuscaloosa, and the junior QB is exploring his opportunities on the transfer market.
The Miami Hurricanes have been listed as a potential fit for the former SEC Offensive Player of the Year, and new head coach Manny Diaz was asked about how Hurts would fit with his offensive scheme, and the potential to alienate some of the quarterbacks already on the roster.
Miami's pursuit of Jalen Hurts begins as the first recruit of the Manny Diaz era is reeled in: https://t.co/BQUF9b79ic— The Athletic CFB (@TheAthleticCFB) January 11, 2019
“Like I mentioned before I can’t comment on any one player specifically, but I told you in the press conference, we’re going to look from Miami to Maine, from Los Angeles to Seattle or beyond for the players that can help us play quarterback,” Diaz told The Athletic. “Understanding the ones we have on our campus, that we got to get those guys to maximize their potential and find out how really good they are. We’ve seen the glimpses of what they really can be. Nothing here changes, really. Everything we talked about a week ago is still the same. Everybody wants to talk about quarterback, we know we have to get that fixed.”
So, Dan Enos to Miami. Jalen Hurts probably goes with him. Enos transformed Hurts' game this season, and another year with the coach would only make sense.— Joseph Goodman (@JoeGoodmanJr) January 11, 2019
Diaz went on to express he wasn't concerned about current QBs like N'Kosi Perry and Cade Weldon leaving should the Canes bring Hurts on board.
All these young quarterbacks should thrive in a little friendly competition.
