After months of wondering where Jalen Hurts' next stop would be, we finally have our answer.

The former Alabama quarterback will transfer to Oklahoma and likely take over for the NFL-bound Kyler Murray as a graduate transfer.

Hurts went 26-2 as a starter before being replaced by Tua Tagovailoa in the second half of the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship. Tagovailoa led a second-half comeback to give the Tide another title and has held onto the starting job ever since.

Hurts generated 7602 total yards of offense and 71 total touchdowns during his time at Alabama. 

The Sooners have had a lot of success with transfer quarterbacks in the past few seasons, as both transfers Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray won the Heisman Trophy with Oklahoma. Hurts would be the most experienced of those three.

He will have just one season of eligibility remaining.
