How Alabama transfers performed in their Week 11 matchups

Alabama has seen several of its highly-rated recruits enter the transfer portal over the years. These players decided to pursue opportunities elsewhere while creating value for themselves.

Two high-profile players in the past that used the transfer portal to their advantage were Alvin Kamara and Jalen Hurts. Both were seeing limited playing time at Alabama, so they transferred to better their careers. Now, the two of them are stars in the NFL.

Others like Antonio Alfano, Eyabi Anoma, and Ishmael Sopsher have struggled ever since they entered their names into the transfer portal.

Therefore, it can work for better or worse. Today, Roll Tide Wire takes a look at some of the performances that Alabama transfers had in Week 11 of the season.
