Jalen Hurts Biography

Jalen Hurts (Jalen Alexander Hurts) is an American football quarterback for the Alabama Crimson Tide. On January 9, 2019, he announced he was transferring from Alabama. His destination is still to be determined.

He attended Channelview High School in Channelview, Texas. As a senior, Hurts passed for 2,384 yards with 26 touchdown passes and rushed for 1,391 yards and 25 touchdowns. He was a second-team all-district selection as a sophomore and was named the District 21-6A Overall MVP as a junior during his high school playing years.

Hurts played against the Texas A&M freshman standout running back Trayveon Williams throughout his high school career. He was rated as a four-star recruit and was ranked among the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the Class of 2016.

Although Texas A&M made a strong push to recruit Hurts after the departure of their starting quarterback, Kyler Murray, they ultimately failed in their efforts after Hurts proceeded to commit to the University of Alabama on June 5, 2015.

Hurts was recruited by Alabama’s Defensive Line Coach Bo Davis and Offensive Coordinator Lane Kiffin. He finished high school academically ranking 39th in his class.

Freshman season

As a true freshman at Alabama in 2016, Hurts competed to open the season as the starting quarterback. Blake Barnett started the first game against the USC Trojans, but by the second game, Hurts had taken over the starting role, becoming the first true freshman to start at quarterback for Alabama in 32 years (Vince Sutton in 1984 was the last).

He produced a historic freshman season under head coach Nick Saban. Hurts threw for 2,780 yards and 23 touchdowns with nine interceptions.

Hurts’ completion percentage was at 62.8 percent, and he finished the season with a quarterback rating of 139.12.

He rushed for a total of 954 yards and 13 touchdowns, breaking the school single season record for rushing yards by a quarterback, surpassing Steadman Shealy’s previous record of 791 yards.

Hurts finished the 2016 season with 36 overall touchdowns breaking Blake Sims’s previous record for touchdowns in a single season for the Crimson Tide with a total of 35 which he set in 2014.

He became the first quarterback coached by Nick Saban to rush for more than 11 touchdowns in a single season.

Hurts was the first player in Alabama history to pass for 300 yards and rush for 100 yards in the same game and the first quarterback to rush for 120 yards or more in multiple games. In the Iron Bowl game against Auburn, he completed 75% of his passes, which set a new Iron Bowl record.

Alabama concluded its 2016–2017 regular season with a perfect 12–0 (8–0 SEC) record. On November 30, 2016, Hurts was declared as one out of the ten finalists for the Manning Award which is given to the nation’s top college quarterback.

On December 3, 2016, Hurts led his team to win the 2016 SEC Championship over the Florida Gators and was subsequently named SEC Offensive Player of the Year, SEC Freshman of the Year, and received Freshman All-American from several publications.

On December 6, 2016, Hurts was featured on the cover page of Sports Illustrated College Football Playoff magazine. On January 9, 2017, top-seeded Alabama lost the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship against the Clemson Tigers by a score of 35–31. The bowl game was played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

Sophomore season

In 2017, Hurts led the Tide to a 13–1 season, giving them a playoff spot as a #4 seed, where they played Clemson in the 2018 Sugar Bowl. He was the offensive MVP in that game, with Da’Ron Payne being the defensive MVP in a 24–6 win over the Tigers.

Hurts was benched at halftime of the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship for true freshman Tua Tagovailoa. He won his first National Championship as the Crimson Tide defeated the Bulldogs by a score of 26–23 in overtime.

Overall, Hurts finished the 2017 season with 2,081 passing yards, 17 passing touchdowns, and one interception to go along with 855 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns.

Junior season

After Tagovailoa helped lead the Crimson Tide to a comeback victory in the National Championship the year before, questions arose if Hurts would remain the starting quarterback for Alabama. In the season opener against Louisville, Tagovailoa was the starter.

Hurts came into the game in a rotation, he had 70 passing yards in the 51–14 victory; Tagovailoa had 227 passing yards and two passing touchdowns.

Tagovailoa was officially named the starter going into the next game against Arkansas State. In a backup role, Hurts has earned significant playing time in the 2018 season.

In the 2018 SEC Championship Game, Hurts relieved an injured Tagovailoa and led the team to a comeback victory. Alabama moved to 13-0 and secured a spot in the Playoff.

In December 2018, Hurts completed his B.A. in communication and information sciences.

Senior season

On January 16, 2019, Jalen Hurts announced via social media that he would be transferring to Oklahoma for his final year of eligibility. As a graduate transfer, Hurts is immediately eligible to play for the 2019 season.

Jalen Hurts Transfer

Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts to transfer to Oklahoma

Jalen Hurts has found a new home after three seasons at Alabama.

The quarterback announced Wednesday on The Player’s Tribune that he will transfer to Oklahoma.

The decision by Hurts comes nine days after Alabama finished its season with a loss to Clemson in the College Football Playoff national championship game. Hurts made visits to Maryland, Oklahoma and Miami (Fla.) last weekend as he sorted out his options.

He introduced himself to Oklahoma fans and thanked Alabama football and fans in his article.

“So to my about-to-be family in Norman, I truly appreciate you for bringing me on board. Y’all don’t know me yet……… but just for now, to introduce myself: I’m a motivated coach’s son from the Eastside of Houston, and I love to play ball.” Hurts wrote.

“And to my Bama family, once again, THANK YOU — for everything. It’s been a great three years. I’ll love you until the end of time!”

Odds had come out last week for where Hurts could land and Oklahoma wasn’t even listed in some of them.

Another had him going to the Sooners at plus-2000.

The Arizona Wildcats were listed at plus-300, second on the list.

Hurts was 26-2 as a starter and led the Crimson Tide to the national championship game in his first two seasons. He was beat out for the job by Tua Tagovailoa this fall after Tagovailoa replaced him in the second half of last year’s title game against Georgia.

Hurts served as a backup and played sparingly throughout the season. His biggest contribution came in the SEC championship game when he replaced an injured Tagovailoa and led Alabama on two touchdown drives in the fourth quarter to beat the Bulldogs.

Hurts graduated last month and will be eligible this upcoming season.

He wrote: “Now, I’m an alumnus of the University of Alabama. Now I’m Bama for LIFE — and that right there will never change! But now it’s also time for me to start a new chapter in my story. I’ve decided to take my talents to the University of Oklahoma, where I will continue my development as both a quarterback and as a student. I’m very fortunate to have this opportunity, and I’m excited for the journey ahead.”

The decision should provide an immediate boost to the Sooners, who have a quarterback vacancy after Kyler Murray’s departure.

Rising junior Austin Kendall has put his name in the NCAA transfer portal and is expected to leave the program. The only other two scholarship quarterbacks on the roster in 2019 will be redshirt freshman Tanner Mordecai and incoming freshman Spencer Rattler, a 5-star recruit out of Phoenix Pinnacle High.

The move also give Hurts an opportunity to work with Sooners coach Lincoln Riley. The past two transfer quarterbacks to Norman – Baker Mayfield and Murray – each won the Heisman Trophy.

The experience at quarterback will be a boost to Oklahoma as it attempts to make a third consecutive playoff appearance.

In making the decision, Hurts turned down the chance to work with two former coaches at Alabama.

At Maryland, he would have reunited with former Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, who was hired as head coach by the Terrapins. Locksley joined the Alabama staff in 2016, the same year Hurts arrived in Tuscaloosa.

Miami (Fla.) also had familiar face as incoming coach Manny Diaz hired Dan Enos as the team’s offensive coordinator. Enos served as Alabama’s quarterbacks coach last season.
