Following struggling a devestating defeat in the 2019 Nationwide Championship, it appears to be like like Alabama soccer has been hit with another reduction as quarterback Jalen Damage declared that he will be leaving the Crimson Tide for the Oklahoma Sooners.
Information of Hurts transfer broke on Wednesday, Jan. 16, when the starter-turned-backup introduced a assertion thanking Nick Saban and the Alabama football relatives for the prospect to engage in for his aspiration school.
“It’s been nearly four several years, now, considering that the working day I got the cellphone contact that adjusted my life. A coach by the title of Nick Saban was on the line, wanting to ask about the possibilities of a Texas boy like me packing up for Tuscaloosa, and coming to enjoy football at the College of Alabama,” Damage wrote in a letter showcased on The Players’ Tribune.
Damage went on to gush additional gratitude about staying a part of the Alabama legacy prior to briefly mentioning the team’s 2018 Nationwide Championship victory where Jalen’s weak general performance forced Saban to demote Damage mid-video game making it possible for for Tua Tagovailoa to direct the Tide to victory.
“Was what transpired in the 2018 Nationwide Championship Sport bittersweet?,” the letter reads. “Of course it was — it was a humbling encounter. It was rough, guy. But I am even tougher for it. I AM Crafted FOR THIS.”
This toughness and perseverence Damage references will now be a weapon for Lincoln Riley and the Oklahoma Sooners offense which is where by Jalen Harm will conclude his faculty career.
