Former Alabama QB Blake Barnett transfers to USF

The former Crimson Tide QB transferred to Arizona State, having lost the starting job to Jalen Hurts after starting the 2016 opener. Barnett threw 5 passes for ASU while backing up Manny Wilkins. He now hopes to have found a home at USF, as reported by JP Peterson of WDAE in Tampa.

Barnett will be available to play this fall and will have 2 years of eligibility remaining. He will look to compete for the starting  QB job as 2017 starter Quinton Flowers completed his Senior season.
