How Alabama transfers performed in their Week 9 matchups

The transfer portal has been helpful to the Crimson Tide football program, but it has also hurt. Last season, the Tide saw key players like Jahleel Billingsley, Agiye Hall, and Drew Sanders all depart the program to play elsewhere.

Now, some of the Alabama transfers have surpassed their accomplishments from Alabama while others have yet to make contributions to their respective teams. Several of the players that have created value for themselves by way of transfer are Taulia Tagovailoa, Brandon Turnage, and Javon Baker.

Others like Paul Tyson, Agiye Hall, and Kaine Williams have struggled to see playing time at their new schools.

Today, Roll Tide Wire takes a closer look at how some Alabama transfers performed in their Week 9 matchups.
