Transfer players could potential fill final two spots for UA’s 2019 class

Marvin Gentry - USA TODAY Sports

The magic number was 29 for the University of Alabama’s latest signing class, and with signing day over, there are still two spots that need to be filled. 

While head coach Nick Saban brought in the top-rated class by a large margin, he did mention during his presser on Wednesday that the Crimson Tide may look at a transfer player for its tight end spot.

Despite returning Miller Forristall, Kedrick James (pending a good appeal) and Major Tennison, Jahleel Billingsley was the lone guy it signed for this unit.

Also, Alabama could be in the market for a transfer at linebacker – seeing how Lyndell “Mack” Wilson has turned pro.
