Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts is in the process of deciding where he will finish his college career. Hurts will be able to play elsewhere immediately in 2019 as a graduate transfer.

Three programs seem to be heaviest in the mix for Hurts: Oklahoma, Miami and Maryland. Hurts checked out all three programs over the weekend, per reports.

Which school is the favorite to land him? According to the people in Las Vegas, it is Maryland.

The Terrapins are now the odds-on favorites to add Hurts, per BetOnline.

On paper, Hurts seems like a strong fit in College Park. He played for Maryland's new head coach Mike Locksley at Alabama this past season.

Locksley was the Crimson Tide's offensive coordinator, and ostensibly, he should be able to utilize him to his full capabilities at Maryland.

The Terps have had plenty of issues, mostly injury-related, at the quarterback position the last couple of seasons. Some stability at the position would be much appreciated.
