Texas A&M’s quarterback situation is in disarray after two former 5-star recruits, Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray, announced their intentions to transfer from the program.
That has left the Aggies scrambling to find a quarterback in the 2016 recruiting class to fill a massive roster spot. It just so happens that one of the nation’s top dual-threat quarterbacks is only around a two-hour car ride away, and it looks like Texas A&M is making a late move for him.
According to Taylor Hamm of 247Sports.com, Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin had a previously unreported in-home visit with Alabama quarterback commit Jalen Hurts from Channelview, Texas.
Now this report won’t come as a surprise to Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban. Reportedly, the Alabama staff knew this visit was going to take place.
The 4-star quarterback committed to Alabama over Texas A&M in June. Hurts will be an early enrollee, which means he will start college in January.
