Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts insists that he hasn't thought of his future beyond Saturday's College Football Playoff semifinal game against Oklahoma, even as rumors swirl that he will transfer following the season.
"My story's far from over," Hurts said Thursday. "That's something that people said. Not me. Who said it was over?"
Hurts was 26-2 as a starter before being benched in favor of Tua Tagovailoa this season. Still, the junior appeared in 11 games and threw for 755 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions. He missed three games dealing with a high ankle sprain.
When Tagovailoa was knocked out of the fourth quarter of the SEC championship game against Georgia with a high ankle sprain, Hurts came on to lead the come-from-behind victory, throwing the game-tying touchdown pass and running in the go-ahead score.
Hurts spoke to the media in advance of the CFP semifinal game at the Capital One Orange Bowl, where the Crimson Tide play the Sooners on Saturday night.
