According to, senior defensive back Maurice Smith has opted to transfer out of the program.

Smith was pegged as a potential starter for the Crimson Tide secondary in 2016, where Alabama does have some holes to fill with the departures of Geno Matias-Smith and Cyrus Jones left some competition for the defensive backs group.

Smith had 38 total tackles, five pass break ups, and two tackles for loss in his three-year career at Alabama. He is a former four-star recruit that committed to Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide back in 2013.

Smith should be eligible to play anywhere in 2016 as a graduate transfer. Considering his talent and experience with the Tide, there is a good chance he becomes an immediate starter at his new program.
