    Jalen Hurts will be transferring out of Alabama. According to betting lines, his most likely landing spot will be Houston.

    I'm not really sure he could beat out a healthy D'Eriq King however.

    I think Jalen Hurts would do just fine in Houston. It would be much easier to transition from the top CFP to a program like Houston....add Dana Holgorson with a Spread Offense and Hurts might be the perfect fit.

    Will King be ready by next season? Does he have a redshirt year left?

    From what I have heard "unofficially" he will be ready. I believe he is entering his final season of legibility however. I'll double check.

    I just don't see Hurts beating him out for the starting job. King is in the groove with this offense. Will see what changes Holgrosen might make.

    No way Hurts beats out a healthy King. If King is ready, he's the QB. Just wondered if King wasn't ready for a full season, he could take a redshirt and Hurts could be the QB in 2019.

    Having Halgorson, King and Hurts in Houston could help land some local recruits.....especially top WR's if Halvorson brings in his WV Spread Offense.

    I thought it was Holgorsen as the new HC

    Well, Hurts is going to Oklahoma.

    Coogs travel to Norman early in the season.
