Alabama Adds Another Quarterback
Former Mississippi State and TCU walk-on quarterback Logan Burnett is transferring to Tuscaloosa to walk-on with the Crimson Tide, according to Charlie Potter of BamaOnline.
The 6-foot-2, 200 pound quarterback is out of Pelham, Ala. and played his high school football for Bessemer Academy. He helped the Rebels to an undefeated season in 2015 and a 3A state championship. He becomes Alabama's fourth walk-on quarterback on the 2020 roster.
Burnett spent four years in Starkville appearing in six games. He's completed his only two collegiate passes for 33 yards.
He chose to transfer to TCU in January as a graduate transfer but spent just one semester in Fort Worth, Texas. Burnett entered the transfer portal for a second time in April and decided to return to his home state to spend his final season of college eligibility.
Burnett told Ben Portnoy of The Dispatch what he aims to accomplish in his final season in college.
"I'm looking at it as an academic first kind of thing," he said. "I'm not going to play at the next level. I'm looking to get a great education, make those great connections in an athletic department, with football coaches and experience (football) for one more season."
He has been working out with former Crimson Tide walk-on and current Vanderbilt wide receiver Mac Hereford to stay in shape during the pandemic. The pair met in Destin, Florida during spring break and have stayed in touch since.
Burnett is majoring in sports administration.
