Four quarterbacks participated in a glorified scrimmage for Alabama football in its spring game.

Nick Saban had four guys trying to impress him and the Crimson Tide fan base.

Jalen Milroe, Ty Simpson, Dylan Lonergan, and Eli Holstein each had good moments. Milroe totaled three touchdowns, Simpson had several beautiful throws that were dropped, Lonergan had a touchdown drive, and Holstein found Ja’Corey Brooks on a 30+ yard pass. Saban saw the efforts of each signal-caller, but he also saw an Alabama defense not making it easy for the offense.
