Alabama linebacker King Mwikuta announced on social media that he intends to transfer to Arkansas State to finish out his college career.

Mwikuta entered the NCAA transfer portal on Tuesday just one day after Alabama’s national championship loss to Georgia.

A West Point, GA., native Mwikuta arrived in Tuscaloosa in the class of 2019 where he primarily served in a reserve role across his three years at the university. He appeared in 35 games across his career as a linebacker and posted a total of six tackles, 1.0 tackles for loss. This past season Mwikuta was able to score a touchdown on a blocked punt.

As he now becomes a member of the Red Wolves, Mwikuta will be reuniting with former Alabama analyst Butch Jones who served under Nick Saban from 2018-20. In his first season as the head coach, Jones led Arkansas State to a 2-10 record.
