Jalen Hurts has been on the national football radar since he was a four-star signal caller for Texas' Channelview High School.

He introduced himself to the college football world as the Alabama Crimson Tide's first true freshman starting quarterback in over 30 years and held the job until the second half of the 2017 National Championship Game, when Tua Tagovailoa usurped him.

Hurts then took his talents to Norman, Oklahoma, to play for head coach Lincoln Riley and the Oklahoma Sooners. He proved he was still one of the best quarterbacks in all the land by carving up Big 12 defenses enough to be named a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2019.

Naturally, the dual-threat QB's next step was the NFL. His rebound season at Oklahoma was all the Philadelphia Eagles needed to see to draft him in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He sat behind Carson Wentz until Wentz played poor enough to give Hurts a shot at commanding the offense full time. He started the final four games of the season and proved himself as a passer and runner despite the Eagles going 1-3.

Now, however, Hurts is in MVP form and has the birds looking like they can win a Super Bowl.

That's a record-breaking brief of the Philly QB's football bio. But what about the man off the field? What about his personal life? His love life?

Let's find out.

Hurts keeps his private life on the down low. He doesn't post much other than football-related content on social media, so it's not easy to know who he's been dating, if anyone.

However, when the 2016 SEC Offensive Player of the Year wasn't throwing touchdowns against Texas A&M and Clemson at Alabama, he was spending his time with his girlfriend Bry Burrows.
