Alabama football loses another name to the NCAA transfer portal.

Shane Lee continues the exodus from the Crimson Tide since Monday. Respectable sources have confirmed the news to Touchdown Alabama Magazine on Lee entering the portal. As a Maryland native, Lee came to Alabama as a four-star linebacker in the 2019 recruiting class. He earned the starting job at middle linebacker as a freshman after Dylan Moses suffered a season-ending knee injury in fall camp. Lee made the All-SEC Freshman Team and Freshman All-American Team in 2019.

He totaled 86 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, three quarterback hurries, two forced fumbles, and one interception.

An injury limited him in 2020 to five games, and Lee played in 10 games for 2021. He totaled six tackles and one quarterback pressure. The 6-foot, 240-pounder is a two-time SEC Championship and a College Football Playoff National Champion.
