Jalen Hurts has been on the move recently, making stops on a few college campuses as he prepares to depart from Alabama.
While there are several destinations that would fit for Hurts, the former Crimson Tide quarterback appears to be debating between three programs: Maryland, Miami and Oklahoma. Those three teams seem to have the advantage when it comes to Hurts.
After Hurts took some visits over the weekend, SEC Network’s Paul Finebaum weighed in on Hurts’ situation, providing some insight as to what he believed would be the best option for the Alabama quarterback.
“I’d hate to bet it, but I’m leaning a little toward Miami,” Finebaum said during his appearance on WJOX. “Oklahoma, to me, to just go there and be the next guy after two Heisman winners doesn’t sound like Jalen, but that would be my guess. But, man, you might as well just close your eyes and guess.”
“I don’t understand Maryland. Forgetting the (Mike) Locksley situation, that just doesn’t seem like a place that Jalen Hurts would be happy.”
Hurts and Locksley both arrived at Alabama in 2016, so following the former offensive coordinator to Maryland doesn’t seem too far-fetched. It’s even more realistic when considering the issues the Terrapins have had at quarterback over the last several years.
But Finebaum believes Miami is in the lead, though he admits he wouldn’t be comfortable wagering on that thought.
