(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Jalen Hurts has played well in backup duty for Alabama so far this season, but the Crimson Tide are clearly rolling with Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback moving forward.Alabama head coach Nick Saban said after the Week 1 win over Louisville that Tua was going to be the starter. Jalen, meanwhile, would be used when necessary.“I think everybody knows that Tua’s going to start this game, and we’re going to use Jalen’s skill set in the future to help however we feel that he can benefit the team,” Saban said.“And I just want to be clear with everyone that I have done this in the past where we don’t say who the starter’s going to be for the first game, and we give both quarterbacks an opportunity to play in the game, which is exactly what we did in this game. Not a whole lot different than what we’ve done in the past, aight. So, now we know and you know.”What does this mean for Hurts’ future at Alabama? Well, questions are already swirling.Hurts can graduate after the 2018 season and transfer somewhere else for the 2019 season. He’d be able to play right away and could have two years of eligibility remaining (if he redshirts this year).One college football analyst has named four schools potential options for Hurts when it comes to a graduate transfer.“Possible destinations for Jalen Hurts: Texas – Texas native and would thrive in that offense Auburn – great scheme fit and the ultimate anti-bama move Miami – Might be a QB away from the playoff Oklahoma – Will be replacing Murray and loves transfers.”Possible destinations for Jalen Hurts:Texas – Texas native and would thrive in that offenseAuburn – great scheme fit and the ultimate anti-bama moveMiami – Might be a QB away from the playoffOklahoma – Will be replacing Murray and loves transfers— Mello (@melloesquire) September 8, 2018Tim Tebow had previously speculated that Auburn could be an option for Hurts, too.(Finebaum just deleted the Tweet in which Tim Tebow speculates recklessly about Jalen Hurts transferring to Auburn.
