Recruiting Rundown: How the Transfer Portal Affects the Class of 2023

Two players have decided to shorten their 2022 season in Alabama, and no, it’s not Bryce Young and Will Anderson.

Running back Trey Sanders, a consensus 5-star recruit who struggled with injuries during his career in Alabama, is on the transfer portal after the news broke Tuesday. The reaction from fans was sympathetic as many were saddened by the promising player’s departure and wished Sanders the best in his next step.

Cornerback Khyree Jackson is also in the transfer portal when the news broke the next day. However, Jackson’s departure was more controversial than Sanders once the facts were put in order.
