New North Texas coach Seth Littrell has reportedly found a quarterback from a Power Five school.

According to the Denton Record-Chronicle, Alabama QB Alec Morris will transfer to the Mean Green. Morris is currently a redshirt junior with the Tide. He'll presumably be a graduate transfer and if he is, would be eligible to play the 2016 season.

The report said Morris is planning on staying with Alabama through the College Football Playoff. Alabama plays not too far from Denton on Thursday evening against Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl in Arlington.

Morris is a native of Allen, Texas, a suburb in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. He was the No. 30 pro-style quarterback in the class of 2012 and a three-star recruit according to Rivals.

He played in three games in 2015 for the Tide. He had one pass attempt (a completion) that went for six yards. Morris appeared in four games in 2014 and didn't attempt a pass last season. He's currently behind Jake Coker and Cooper Bateman on Alabama's depth chart and was competing with them to be the starting quarterback for the Tide in 2015. Coker has started most of the team's games while Bateman started against Ole Miss.
