Alabama Basketball: Braxton Key set to transfer
Saban remained supportive of the two-year starter, whom he benched at halftime of January's national championship game.
Key tweeted his respects to Avery and the Alabama program, and said "This decision was extremely hard and weighed heavily on me", in announcing his decision.
The 6-foot-5, 280-pound offensive tackle holds offers from Louisville, Kentucky, Tennessee, LSU, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Penn State, Purdue, Vanderbilt, Florida State and Western Kentucky. I was not disappointed in the way Jalen (Hurts) played.
Spring football is notorious for the overreactions outsiders assign to glowing practice reports, but there's no doubt few players in the nation stood to gain more from the past several weeks than Jalen Hurts. He rushed for a net of 33 yards and also threw an interception. With Tua Tagovailoa out of action due to injury, Hurts was outperformed by redshirt freshman Mac Jones, who completed 23 of 35 passes for 289 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Hurts was 19 for 37 with 195 yards and an interception against the first-team defense. "I think we've got some guys that can rush a little bit, and even though we're rushing four guys most of the time, there was way too much pressure in the pocket for the quarterback to be able to operate like we'd like".
"But Saban was audibly and visibly frustrated by Hurts' inability to move the ball through the air, including when one of ESPN's microphones picked up Saban saying, "...
Spring football is the best time of the year to evaluate the outlook for a roster and for players to try and impress their way to jobs as the summer rolls around. "Jalen made some good plays and throws, and I'm sure if you were to talk to him he would say, 'I wish there were things I did better and can improve on.' We've been very pleased with the progress that Mac Jones has made, so that gives us more depth at that position".
