    Both could go.

    Just a hunch............no concrete evidence that he will, but I've felt for a long time that Jalen will transfer. I could be wrong, and if I am then that's ok. I think Jones sticks around to try and win the starting job from Tua.............but as the poster above stated, both could go, especially since both Tua's brother and Tyson have committed..........hard to say what will happen

    I actually agree with your conclusion that Jones stays, but get there a different way.

    I think Jones is looking at Tua being the starter for two years. After which time, Jones will be a RS Junior, competing against guys two years younger. All the while, getting the best coaching, and winning championships.

    Not a bad gig, and a thought process Saban would love.

    Hatcher signing gives us the depth to not have to worry about this any more. I don't believe that both Jones and Hurts are going to transfer at the same time, and as long as we have one of Tua or Jalen and decent depth we will be favored to win another championship.

    In the video I noticed he does not give up on the pass until he is literally chased out of the pocket. I like that.

    Agreed, I don't get this one.

    -- thought Arkansas State was his next best option, and
    -- signs between the end of the spring semester and beginning of the first summer term in Tuscaloosa
    does not in any way fit the profile of a Saban recruit.

    Absent a QB transfer, it just makes no sense. Saban doesn't do anything without a clear purpose, so we're left to piece together what he might be thinking.

    While you could construct all sorts of scenarios, the simplest one is a transfer, leaving us with two QBs on scholarship, and needing some disaster insurance.

    Lacking a reason to think otherwise, I have to go with Occam's Razor -- the simplest explanation is usually the best one. If that's right, the only question left is who -- Hurts or Jones?
    I was thinking the same thing...

    Mac Jones isn't transferring until he gets his degree. The success of QB transferring Alabama and being successful somewhere is very low. Jalen might be the exception to that, and I really think Mac Jones can start somewhere outside SEC, just not right now.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    Very plausible as well..............and I had considered that too. It would be beneficial to Jones. Something just makes me think ( and I could be very wrong) that after all the comments made not long ago, the decision might have already been made if certain parameters aren't met.............again, just a hunch

    Assuming Hurts transfers, I don't think Jones has any real reason to transfer. He'd be getting backup minutes, and he could re-evaluate the situation after the season.
    Apologies if I said anything that could be construed as a personal insult.

    And he's always one play away from starting
