community news, 2020 NFL Draft: When Will Jalen Hurts Be Selected?

While prospects like Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa make the headlines, Jalen Hurts is flying under the radar. Few quarterbacks have a college career story like the one Hurts can tell. During three seasons at Alabama, Hurts played in three National Championship games and the Crimson Tide won one of them.

Following a four-star high school career at Channelview High School in Texas, Hurts committed to Alabama. He became the first true freshman starter for the Crimson Tide since Vince Sutton in 1984. Hurts set school records for total touchdowns (36) and rushing yards (954) during his freshman season. Alabama won 14 straight games in 2016 before losing to Clemson in the National Championship.

Back as the starter, during his sophomore season in 2017, Hurts lead Alabama to an 11-1 regular season record. After the Tide rolled over Clemson, 24-6 in CFP semifinals, Hurts started his second National Championship game. Alabama struggled early during that contest and trailed Georgia 13-0 at halftime. Tua Tagovailoa replaced Hurts to begin the second half and led the Tide to a 26-23 victory in overtime.

Tagovailoa took over as the Crimson Tide starter during the 2018 season, and Hurts was relegated to a backup role during his junior year. For his senior season, Hurts transferred to Oklahoma and helped the Sooners advance to the CFP semifinal. During his four-year college career, Hurts racked up 9,477 passing yards, with 80 TD and just 20 INT. He also posted 3,274 rushing yards and 43 TD over 56 games.
