We’ve seen a lot of players enter the new NCAA transfer portal this offseason. The latest Alabama player to put his name in is a former five-star recruit.
Linebacker Eyabi Anoma, one of the top recruits in the 2018 class, has entered the portal, according to AL.com’s Matt Zenitz. Anoma was the No. 2 defensive end and the No. 4 overall recruit in 2018, according to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings.
The Baltimore (Md.) St. Frances product appeared in 12 games for the Crimson Tide this season, recording nine tackles (two for loss) and one quarterback hurry.

A player in the transfer portal does not have to leave his current program, but is able to have contact with other schools.
Players can withdraw from the portal at any time as well.
A pair of Crimson Tide players–defensive back Kyriq McDonald and long snapper Scott Meyer–entered the portal yesterday. McDonald played in 11 games in 2018, making seven tackles, while Meyer appeared in on contest after serving as the team’s main long snapper in 2017.
Alabama finished the 2018 season with a 14-1 record, losing only to Clemson in the national championship game.
