Alabama notable outgoing transfers (since Saban’s retirement)
Isiah Bond, who saved the day in the Iron Bowl, bringing down Jalen Milroe’s game-winning touchdown pass, transferred to Texas, just two days after Saban’s retirement. Bond caught 48 passes to lead the Crimson Tide in 2023 and was second in receiving yards with 668.
The sophomore tight end entered the transfer portal on Sunday. Niblack was third in receptions with 20 for 327 yards and four touchdowns. He will be a highly sought-after pass catcher around the country.
As a freshman, Murphy didn’t play much, just 18 total snaps, and finished with three total tackles. He was expected to be a foundational piece of the defense in the future.
Many of the young players on Alabama’s defense are leaving Tuscaloosa. Saban’s specialty has always been coaching the secondary, so it’s no surprise that two cornerbacks will look for a new home with an offensive-minded head coach coming in.
Kite played just 22 total snaps on defense this season and Ricks only played nine.
