DeBoer said none of the quarterbacks turned the ball over. He praised Jalen Milroe’s consistency and was pleased with the physicality shown in 85-90 plays in the first game-like practice. Several sources confirmed information to Touchdown Alabama Magazine inside the scrimmage. All updates from the eighth practice of spring ball is below.

Offensive Notes

-Jalen Milroe is Alabama’s undisputed starting quarterback.

-The junior has the trust of everyone on the team and coaching staff. He’s always been an electric athlete, but sources told Touchdown Alabama Magazine that he’s ‘making plays on the back end of his reads.’ Milroe has greatly improved as a passer.
