Report: Former Alabama QB heading to Western Kentucky

Alabama Spring Game

While Thursday seemed to be all about Alabama at SEC Media Days, one former Tide quarterback had reportedly found his new football home.

Parker McLeod is heading to Western Kentucky to compete for a starting job. SCORE Atlanta was first to report the transfer news, via Twitter. The report was later confirmed by Bowling Green Daily News.

Parker decided to transfer out of Alabama in May, making him the fifth quarterback to transfer away from the Crimson Tide under Nick Saban‘s watch. This year’s starting quarterback race at Alabama is between Blake Sims and Florida State transfer Jacob Coker. Saban said Thursday there is no rush to announce a starting quarterback for the season at this time.

It is expected McLeod will not be eligible to play for Western Kentucky until 2015. NCAA transfer rules would require McLeod to sit out the 2014 season. That would give McLeod a year to prepare for a run at the starting job under center in 2015. He will arrive at Western Kentucky with three years of eligibility.
