(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum shared some noteworthy Jalen Hurts news during an appearance on First Take this morning. The SEC guru revealed that Hurts did look at other schools before deciding to stay put at Alabama.Hurts, of course, was long rumored to be considering a transfer from Alabama. However, he’s opted to stay put in Tuscaloosa, Ala. – at least for this season.Finebaum reveals that he heard conflicting information, but he does believe Hurts looked elsewhere.“I think he looked (elsewhere),” Finebaum said, per 247Sports. “I’ve heard conflicting stories that he was on the verge of it until people said, look, you still have another year. The difference is, you all know, Jalen graduates in December and Kelly was out of time. I think Jalen has said, ‘you know what, I’m on the Alabama Crimson Tide and they’re best team in the country and I’m still playing a lot. I’m going to gut this out.’“But I think every reasonable person thinks he’s leaving in December or January, whenever the season ends.”Hurts will probably be leaving Alabama whenever the Crimson Tide’s season ends (the national title game, probably).Where will he be going?One analyst named four schools as possible destinations:“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, 2018ESPN’s Tim Tebow had speculated that Auburn could be an option, too.(Finebaum just deleted the Tweet in which Tim Tebow speculates recklessly about Jalen Hurts transferring to Auburn. Hmm.)— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) September 7, 2018For now, though, Hurts is clearly happy at Alabama. He’ll have a decision to make in a couple of months, though.
