    Trojans coach Clay Helton told reporters that the Class of 2016 signee a 4-star offensive tackle recruit out of high school is trying to join a school closer to home, according to Ryan Abraham of Helton also denied an Internet rumor that Price punched him in the face and was being dismissed from the program.

    Price is a Lawrenceville, Ga., native who took official visits to Georgia, Auburn and LSU leading up to National Signing Day, and was predicted by many to sign with the Bulldogs. He also considered Tennessee among his favorites at one point.

    Price was ranked the No. 9 offensive tackle in his class...

  • Scarblog: Blake Barnett leaving Alabama was only a matter of time

    Quarterbacks want to play quarterback. They don't want to mop up in games already decided. They don't want to wear baseball caps and hold up funny signs or flash signals to other quarterbacks.

    With rare exceptions like Auburn vs. Clemson, only one of them can play at a time, and only one of them can be the man, and it's only a matter of time until the men behind the man look for another place to be the man themselves.

    Looks like that time for Blake Barnett is now.'s Matt Zenitz reports that Barnett has left the Alabama football team with the intention to transfer to another school.

    The timing may be surprising, but the decision isn't.

    Barnett started the opener against USC, but when Jalen Hurts took over on the third series and didn't sit again until the game was in hand, it became obvious that Hurts was going to be Alabama's starting quarterback.

    Hurts assumed that position in the second game against Western Kentucky and did nothing but solidify it in that win and victories over Ole Miss and Kent State. Barnett was relegated to second string, getting no snaps until the Western Kentucky and Kent State games were decided and none at all against Ole Miss.

    Hurts is a true freshman, which means there's a good chance he'll be Alabama's starting quarterback for the next three or four years. Barnett is a redshirt freshman, and there was no way he was going to spend the rest of his college career as a backup.

    All quarterbacks want to play, but Barnett isn't just any quarterback. He was a consensus five-star recruit from California who was named MVP of the 2014 Elite 11 Quarterback Competition, the No. 1 pocket passer in his class [mayber ever] by and the No. 1 dual-threat QB by

  • Punch in the gut to those coaches who wait until fall classes start to name their starter.
  • #6 by jbcarol on 02 Oct 2016
  • If Barnett's best case scenario unfolds, it could be a game-changer in college football particularly at the quarterback position. We regularly see college coaches delay naming a starting quarterback in open competitions until the first game of the season. Sometimes the competition extends well into the season. That can be a tool used to limit the flexibility and motivation for a quarterback to transfer out.

    Barnett is presenting a scenario that gives quarterbacks a counter, the opportunity to transfer to a different school and preserve eligibility even after the season has kicked off.

    The source who thinks Barnett might have all of 2017 available muses that by leaving Alabama now and arriving at a two-year institution with a mid-term date in mid-October, Barnett would be essentially wiping clean the fall of 2016 at Alabama from his academic record. Consequently, his midterm transfer to a two-year institution would allow him to retroactively start the clock to the beginning of the first semester, thus allowing him to be eligible for the 2017 season with three years remaining to fulfill three years of eligibility.

  • Two months ago, it was announced that inside linebacker Tim Kimbrough, who started seven games last year, was transferring from Georgia.

    He revealed on his Twitter and Instagram accounts on Thursday that he has decided to enter the 2017 NFL draft.

    Ive been thinking very hard about what I should do best for my future and I have came to a final conclusion on what I have decided, Kimbrough wrote on Instagram. I would like to announce that I have decided to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.

    Kimbrough was Georgias leading returning tackler from last season, when he had 67 tackles, 5.5 for a loss, and one sack. But after being suspended for the TaxSlayer Bowl for unspecified reasons, then returning to the team with a clean slate, he fell behind Natrez Patrick and then Roquan Smith in the pecking order.

    McElroy was highly critical of Hurd and compared the move to that of Blake Barnett, who decided to transfer out of Alabama in the middle of the season.

    McElroy would go on to call Hurd selfish and a quitter.

    To walk out at this time of the season is ridiculous and hes always going to be hes forever going to be remember as a quitter when times got tough.

    McElroy added that if Tennessee had a better record Hurd would still be on the team.

    The former Alabama quarterback also brought up that Hurd seems to be all about the NFL. And while a move like this could get him more reps at another position, he will now have a giant red flag next to his name.

    I can tell you thing, when hes being evaluated by NFL Draft evaluators and front office personnel, there will be a massive red flag next to his name, knowing that when his team lost three in a row, he decided to walk out on his team. What does that tell you about his competitive spirit, McElroy said.

    McElroy is an analyst for the SEC Network.

    He is currently doing game analysis including other conferences

  • Would know.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Jalen Hurds name was never uttered, but Tennessee coach Butch Jones commented on the recent uptick of midseason transfers during the SEC Teleconference on Wednesday.

    The Volunteers have lost a pair of former 5-star recruits in the last three weeks, as receiver Preston Williams left the team on Oct. 13 and then the Hurd on pace to become the schools all-time leading rusher abruptly left the team Monday morning.

    I think every young man has their own reasoning why, Jones said on kids leaving during a season.

    Theres a difference behind it. You can never devalue the team concept with everything that goes into it. I do think its becoming more prominent though. But every young every young man [sic] has their reason leaving a program.

    Zachs Mail Stack: Which transfer QB does Florida have a chance with?

    With Luke Del Rios struggles this season and the uncertainty surrounding true freshmen Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask, the quarterback position will once again be a question mark in 2017.

    The Gators are in the mix for three quarterbacks: junior college players Blake Barnett (Alabama) and Jarrett Stidham (Baylor) and graduate transfer Malik Zaire. Of the three, UF has the best chance with Zaire.

    Barnett and Stidham have had several schools after them for a while, and Florida is a little late to the party. One of them would need to officially visit this month for that to change.

    Zaire, however, just announced his intentions to transfer this week and lists Florida as one of his favorites. He did not win the Irishs starting job this year and suffered a season-ending injury in the second game of 2015, but the Elite 11 finalist had impressive performances against LSU, Texas and Southern Cal.

    Hes a dual-threat quarterback with 816 passing yards and 324 rushing yards in basically four games of action. Zaire ...

    Both Cornwell and fourth-year junior Cooper Bateman said they'd be transferring after the 2016 season after true freshman Hurts secured the job last fall.
