Report: Alabama transfer Drew Sanders plans to visit Texas

·1 min read

Alabama saw a mass exodus of players hit the transfer portal after their national championship loss on Monday.

One of the players on their way out to door in Tuscaloosa will be taking a visit to Austin this weekend, per Inside Texas.

Sanders is a former five-star from the 2020 recruiting class who would be a valuable addition to Texas’ defense. The second-year linebacker totaled 24 tackles and one sack while batting injury much of the 2021 season. He could fit right in at either the “jack” or “buck” position in Texas’ defense.

Sanders showed off his potential with a few big plays in a game against Florida early in the season.

Texas has already done well in the transfer portal this offseason as the Horns landed former Ohio State Buckeyes’ Quinn Ewers and Ryan Watts. Adding Sanders would be another key piece to the puzzle as Texas looks to rebuild the roster.
