Alabama’s secondary got a huge boost for next season when defensive back Mark Barron decided to return for his senior season Saturday.
However, another member of Nick Saban‘s highly-regarded 2008 recruiting class is taking off in another direction. More specifically, fellow defensive back B.J. Scott has decided to follow through on his intentions and transfer to the University of South Alabama. Per NCAA rules, Scott will not have to sit out a year and will be able to contribute immediately to the Jaguars’ defense.
Scott, a redshirt sophomore, only appeared in 15 games in his 3 years with the Tide. He recorded six tackles and an interception as a DB after beginning college as a wide receiver.
