The new reality of college football is that no roster will ever look the same from year to year. Especially at programs such as Alabama and Ohio State where you have 20+ kids transferring out any given year and that many roster spots to replace it just turns into a revolving door.
So, for Alabama fans not only was losing the Rose Bowl a heartbreaker in itself, but then you have to worry about the purge of the roster. One of the first Alabama players to announce his intent to transfer was Shazz Preston back on Jan. 2, before Saban had even decided to retire. In two years with the Tide, Preston appeared in 10 games – mainly on special teams.
Coming out of high school, Preston was a Top-100 recruit in the country and was ranked as the No. 8 WR in the ’22 cycle. Today, Preston announced his decision to continue his collegiate career at Tulane. Preston is originally a Louisiana native, so the move will definitely bring him closer to home.
