Khurtiss Perry, a former four-star defensive lineman from Pike Road, Ala., is headed elsewhere. Matt Zenitz of 247Sports broke the story on social media as Perry was one of the most explosive linemen in the 2022 recruiting cycle. The 6-foot-2, 265-pounder was an elite in-state prospect that totaled 76 tackles, 22 sacks, 30 quarterback hurries, and a forced fumble as a senior in 2021 at Pike Road High School. Perry chose Alabama over Auburn, Texas, and Clemson, and he redshirted his initial freshman season.

He helped the Crimson Tide to a Southeastern Conference Championship and a College Football Playoff berth in 2023.
