Via a report from the Denton-Record Chronicle, Alabama quarterback Alec Morris is set to leave the program — returning to his home state to play for the University of North Texas. 

Being a redshirt junior, Morris will take advantage of the graduate transfer rule. He’ll be eligible right away to perform for UNT. One would think he’s in line to potentially start for the Mean Green. The team went 1-11 in 2015. 

Morris featured briefly in Tuscaloosa during his four-year career, offering the program depth more than anything. He completed one pass for six yards in four years whilst at Alabama. 

The Crimson Tide’s depth at quarterback appears to be fine heading into the future. While Jake Coker will graduate at the conclusion of this year, Alabama will return an experienced option in Cooper Bateman — as well as the likes of David Cornwell and highly-touted freshman Blake Barnett. Additionally, Alabama currently has a commitment from 2016 prospect Jalen Hurts.
