In addition to Maryland and Miami, Alabama transfer Jalen Hurts is reportedly expected to draw interest from Lincoln Riley and the Oklahoma Sooners.

On Friday night, Hurts was spotted with former Alabama offensive coordinator Mike Locksley at a Maryland-Indiana game.

The junior and would-be graduate transfer, who attended the Terps' basketball game against IN on Friday night, also is expected to draw interest from Oklahoma, sources told ESPN.

Then, on Friday, news broke that Dan Enos, who was supposed to be Alabama's new offensive coordinator, has accepted the same OC job with Miami, which led even more people to believe Hurts will take his talents to Coral Gables, Florida. Tua Tagovailoa was tabbed as the starter for the 2018 season after Tagovailoa replaced Hurts at halftime of the College Football Playoff National Championship against Georgia last season.


CaneSport.com was first to report that Hurts would visit Miami. There are also rumors that Hurts is getting interest from schools like Tennessee, where former Alabama assistant Jeremy Pruitt is now the head coach.

Hurts was used in a limited capacity this season, appearing in every game but two for the Tide as a backup.

The Houston native completed 73 percent of his passes while throwing for 765 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions in a reserve role this season.
