Kight has now become the second member of the Crimson Tide to join head coach Gus Malzahn and the Black Knights as wide receiver Christian Leary joined the team this offseason as well.
After spending four years with Alabama, Kight leaves the program as a graduate transfer. Last season he appeared in all 12 games serving as the backup to starting left tackle Tyler Steen.
The Crimson Tide has seen several offensive linemen leave for the transfer portal as Kight was also joined by Javion Cohen, Tommy Brockermeyer, Tanner Bowles and Damieon George.
