Jalen Hurts’ Father Thinks He’s A Better Fit At Oklahoma Than Alabama

Jalen Hurts’ father, Averion Hurts, thinks Oklahoma is a much better fit for his son than Alabama. Per Saturday Down South...

I was texting with Jalen Hurts’ dad, Averion, during the Oklahoma-Houston game, and the Hurts family had to be happy with what was playing out on the field.

For 2 years, Averion – a successful high school coach in suburban Houston – has been saying what many outside of the Alabama orbit wondered: Jalen Hurts was miscast in the Alabama offense.

Instead of spreading the field and allowing Hurts to read coverages and find holes, Alabama stayed true to its run-oriented mentality and throwing off play-action – a philosophy that has significantly changed with Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback. In fact, Averion Hurts and his staff at Channelview High made a point to tell me in the spring of 2018 that they believed the play calling in the 2017 National Championship Game changed when Tagovailoa replaced Hurts.
What do you think?

Saban used him and threw him like all the rest, dont buy the BS speech after the SECCG. JH needed development to be a passer and Riley was perfect for that.

We'll just have to wait and see. It would be something to see the Oklahoma Sooners play the Alabama Elephants in the CFB now wouldn't it?

Wait and see on this I think. Most QBs are probably a better fit in the Big 12 than the SEC in terms of putting up stats. He did look really good against Houston though.

Very few if any good Ds in Big 12 so he will be fine.
