Quarterback Julian Sayin was an early enrollee for the Crimson Tide after signing with the program as one of the top prospects of the 2024 recruiting cycle. Without having spent much time at Alabama, Sayin is now on the move to Ohio State.
The news of Sayin entering the transfer portal did not come immediately after Nick Saban retired, but very quickly after the Tide landed a commitment from Washington true freshman quarterback Austin Mack.
Ohio State has landed a few Alabama transfers this offseason. Sayin will be joining former Crimson Tide center Seth McLaughlin and defensive back Caleb Downs. The Buckeyes also recently hired former Alabama offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien as the team’s new offensive play-caller.
Alabama has plenty of depth at quarterback, but many viewed Sayin as the future of the Crimson Tide.
