‘Dawgs pick up transfer defensive back from the Crimson Tide

NCAA Football: Mississippi State at Alabama The Tuscaloosa News-USA TODAY Sports

Kirby Smart and his staff have picked up another puzzle piece to help reconstruct their secondary.

Alabama redshirt sophomore safety Brandon Turnage announced this evening that he’s entered the transfer portal and will be joining the Bulldogs. Turnage was a four star prospect in the class of 2019 when he signed with the Tide. But he’s so far struggled to crack the rotation in Tuscaloosa. He played in three games in 2020, recording a single pass break up, but no tackles.

Will the 6’1, 195 pound Turnage find a role in the Bulldog secondary? It’s hard to say. But a veteran defender with good size and solid coverage skills won’t hurt. With this addition it looks like the ‘Dawgs May be getting closer to filling their transfer allotment (assuming no additional attrition). Until later...

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
