Alabama freshman quarterback Blake Barnett has reportedly been in a hospital since Monday, and he’s been documenting the situation on social media.
Matt Zenitz of AL.com reported Barnett has also posted photos on SnapChat, and one Tuesday mentioned that he needed multiple blood transfusions. Zenitz said Alabama declined comment on the matter.
Barnett, a true freshman who was a 5-star recruit from California, posted a photo Wednesday on Instagram with the caption, “My face after being here for the past couple of days. Hopefully I will be able to leave soon. Thank you for all the best wishes! #SoWhatNowWhat.”
Barnett was part of the quarterback competition during preseason camp, but has not played this season.
