Mac Jones shines; Jalen Hurts struggles in A-Day game

Alabama Basketball: Braxton Key set to transfer

Nick Saban was not disappointed with Jalen Hurts after Alabama's spring game on Saturday despite some thoughts to the contrary.

Hurts was the lone quarterback under the microscope on Saturday, but it's unlikely to stay that way.

The Tide finished 20-16 overall and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament before losing to eventual national champion Villanova.

"It was hard this spring with some of the players we had out that are really good leaders and guys that really impact other people, but that created an opportunity for other players to have to step up and do that, and I was pleased with the progress we made in those areas", Saban said after the A-Day game. The Hawaiian looked as if he was going to play in the spring game despite the injury, but suffered a setback in his recovery one week before the game. The father of the Crimson Tide QB told Bleacher Report that his son will likely transfer if he doesn't win the starting job. Would the loser of the quarterback competition transfer?




SHORT-HANDED OFFENSE: Along with Tagovailoa, the Crimson Tide offense was without receivers Jerry Jeudy and Tyrell Shavers, lineman Matt Womack and running back Josh Jacobs. Meanwhile, Bulovas, who was the kicker for both the Crimson and White teams, finished the day connecting on 5-of-7 field goals, including netting 48- and 49-yard attempts.

Sophomore Najee Harris led the rushing attack with 41 yards on 14 carries, while sophomore Devonta Smith was tops for the Tide in receiving, catching five passes for a game-high 87 yards.

Jones was named the co-MVP of A-Day after connecting on 23-of-35 passes for 289 yards and two touchdowns through the air. "We've known what he can do, he just had his shot today and he made the most of it". Quinnen Williams says that the team has put forth more effort to be more like the 2016 defense that tailed a total of 54 sacks.
