If Jalen Hurts does transfer out from Alabama, where would he go? Here's the latest on his situation.

Hurts took over the Alabama program as a freshman, leading the team to back-to-back national championship game appearances and totaled a 25-2 record in his two seasons as the team's quarterback.

Despite his successes in recent seasons, Hurts struggled when it counted most against Georgia in the first half of this year's championship against Georgia. Freshman Tua Tagovailoa replaced Hurts and led the Tide to a comeback overtime victory over the Dawgs.

Many analysts believe Tua will start for Nick Saban and the Tide next season, forcing Jalen Hurts to ride the bench, change positions, or transfer.

If he does transfer, where would he go? We listed 5 potential destinations here.

ESPN analyst and former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy has a suggestion, too. He made it during an interview with The Dan Patrick Show. It's Texas.

“I think that’s a real possibility,” McElroy said of a potential Hurts transfer. “He’s from Texas and the Texas Longhorns are in the quarterback market. And, by the way, he didn’t redshirt. So when he does transfer– if he does– and I would assume that’s what he will do because he’s a quarterback and it’s hard to go to a guy and say ‘You mind playing outside linebacker? Are you good moving to running back?’ Not a lot of guys take kindly to that move, especially at the collegiate level.
