Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Jalen Hurts, who entered the NCAA transfer portal earlier this week, visited Maryland on Friday, and a source confirmed to ESPN that he also will visit Miami this weekend.
The junior and would-be graduate transfer, who attended the Terps’ men’s basketball win over No. 22 Indiana on Friday night, has drawn interest from numerous teams, including Oklahoma and Auburn, sources told ESPN. It is unclear whether either the Sooners or Tigers will receive an official visit from Hurts, however.
CaneSport.com was first to report that Hurts would visit Miami.
As a grad transfer, Hurts will be eligible to play next season.
The Houston native went 26-2 as a starting quarterback at Alabama before he was benched in favor of Tua Tagovailoa this season.
Hurts still appeared in all but two games as a backup, completing 51-of-70 pass attempts for 765 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions.
A big reason Hurts is entertaining Maryland is his connection with new head coach Mike Locksley, who was Hurts’ offensive coordinator at Alabama this past season.
Miami announced Friday that it had hired Dan Enos — Hurts’ quarterbacks coach at Alabama — as the Hurricanes’ offensive coordinator.
