Alabama Quarterback David Cornwell Plans to Transfer
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – Alabama quarterback David Cornwell says he is transferring.
The redshirt sophomore announced his decision Wednesday in a Twitter post. Redshirt freshman Blake Barnett left the program early in the season after freshman Jalen Hurts won the starting job. Cooper Bateman is the backup.
It’s not immediately clear if Cornwell will remain with the team through the playoffs.
Cornwell enrolled at Alabama in January 2014 as a four-star prospect from Norman, Oklahoma.
He appeared in the final minutes of games against Kent State and Mississippi State this season but didn’t attempt a pass. Cornwell was in the mix for the starting job each of the past two seasons.
Cornwell said in his post that his “dream is to get on the field and contribute.”
