Did Blake Barnett angrily roll away from the Crimson Tide because he’s been given a backseat in the quarterback position at UA? Barnett started the season with high hopes that he would lead the Tide to victory during the 2016-2017. However, Barnett has been playing backup to breakout freshman, Jalen Hurts, since their first game. His performance overshadowed Barnett by a longshot.
Still, Barnett appeared in three games this season with 219 yards and two touchdown passes. He even completed a touchdown in their most recent 48-0 win against Kent State University, but in Barnett’s eyes it was not enough. Since his future with the Tide as a starting quarterback was not promised, he announced today that he would be transferring from the University of Alabama. The redshirted freshman, Cooper Bateman, will now be the second string quarterback.
