Jalen Hurts is everything you want:
In his four seasons in college, Jalen Hurts completed 65.1% of his passes and rushed for 3,274-yards. Hurts was a Heisman Trophy finalist in his senior season with the Oklahoma Sooners after proving to be a good but not great option with the Alabam Crimson Tide.
When Hurts was with the Crimson Tide he guided them to a National Championship appearance as a freshman that the team ultimately lost to the Clemson Tigers. His sophomore year saw him get benched in another National Championship game for Tua Tagovialoa, who would lead Alabama to win the game vs. the Georgia Bulldogs after trailing at halftime.
When all hope seemed lost for Hurts’ career, he stepped up in his junior when it mattered most in a rematch vs. the Georgia Bulldogs when Tagolvialoa went down with an injury. Hurts looked like a new player; one full of confidence and looked adversity in the face and won.
Hurts went on to dominate at Oklahoma his senior season and was one of college football’s best players while carrying the Sooners to the College Football Playoffs.
Jalen Hurts is battled tested and someone who stepped up when it mattered most. Hurts isn’t a cocky dude, either. Hurts is a humble young man who is grounded in his faith and a man amongst boys. This should entice the Baltimore Ravens quite a bit, as he’s everything you want in a backup, but he’s proven he can step up when it matters most.
