The Alabama Crimson Tide is fresh off one of the most dramatic Iron Bowl victories of all time and must now turn its attention to the SEC Championship Game against the Georgia Bulldogs.

The Crimson Tide must deal with a distraction as 247Sports reports that Alabama redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Pierce Quick will enter the transfer portal. Quick enters the transfer portal with three years of eligibility remaining.

The Hewitt-Trussville High School alum was a 4-star recruit and ranked as the No. 40 overall player and No. 7 offensive tackle in the 2019 class, according to the 247Sports Composite.

Quick has appeared in eight games over the last three seasons for the Crimson Tide, earning most of his playing time at offensive guard. He has only played against the Miami Hurricanes in the 2021 season.

Quick chose Alabama over the likes of LSU, Clemson and Georgia. He will likely be a highly sought after recruit this offseason.

The local offensive lineman was one of the many Alabama football players to take advantage of the new Name, Image and Likeness rules as he partnered with Saw's BBQ, Barstool and Meals by Misty prior to the 2021 season beginning.

Quick joins Xavier Williams and Marcus Banks to announce their intentions to enter the transfer portal during the 2021 season.
