Despite several players opting to enter the transfer portal, Alabama takes comfort in knowing that its roster isn’t diminishing any further ahead of the Sugar Bowl.
Nick Saban confirmed during his press conference that the Crimson Tide would not have any opt-outs ahead of the game including quarterback Bryce Young and linebacker Will Anderson.
During the session, Saban shared how proud he was of his team for not having any opt-outs while sharing how the team has minimized the risk of playing.
“I think it sets a great example for guys that respect their teammates, wanna be a part of their team, know the impact that they can make, the value that they can create for themselves by playing well against good competition,” Saban said. “I’m extremely proud of these guys.
“We’re gonna support them in every way that we can. As an institution, we’ve minimized the risk of them playing in the game by insuring them the best that we possibly can so that they’re not taking a big risk by playing.”
Alabama is set to kickoff against Kansas State on Dec. 31.
