Blake Barnett, Where Will He Go?

Kent Gidley/UA Athletics

The older i get, the more I realize how young a 20 year old human actually is.  Blake Barnett , Bama’s back-up QB, has decided to transfer because he wants playing time.  We gotta remember this kid has aspirations to become an NFL QB and he certainly has the talent.  His plan was to be 3 or 4 year starter at Alabama and Jalen Hurts has changed everything the last 30 days.

The question now is “WHERE WILL HE GO?”  Here’s what could happen according to Hero

Rutgers:  His fiancée Maddie Peterson is from New Jersey and spends most of her time there.  Rutgers recruited Blake heavily 2 years ago and he’d be close to his sweetie.  Btw, the 2 became engage 2 months ago.

UCLA:  The Bruins were the first to offer Barnett, and it’s very close to home in Corona, CA.  Mommas cooking could factor in here and he loves Head Coach Jim Mora.

Oregon: Oregon was second to Alabama in 2014.  The Ducks had Marcus Mariota then and Barnett wanted early playing time.

We all know with talent like this young man has it won’t be long before he has a new football jersey.  We Bama fans would have loved to keep him but life is short, and lets wish him future success… long as he’s not starring down a Crimson defense.

There is no need to hate #8…ROLL TIDE!!!  :)
