“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,” Hurts wrote in the article.
Hurts started for Alabama for two years and led the Crimson Tide to a pair of national championship games. He was benched in last year’s national title game and lost the starting QB job to Tua Tagovailoa going into this season.
