Senior Offensive Linemen Enters Transfer Portal
Rising redshirt senior offensive lineman, Scott Lashley has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal according to Matt Zenitz of AL.com. Lashley played in eight games in 2019 as a backup, amassing 58 snaps at right tackle. Lashley will be eligible to play immediately at a new school, having graduated from Alabama in December.
Lashley was a four-star prospect out of West Point High School, he was rated the 20th best offensive tackle in the nation and the eight best recruit in the state of Mississippi in the class of 2016 by 247sports. He redshirted his first year in Tuscaloosa, appeared in three games in 2017, and saw action in eight games in 2018 backing up Jedrick Wills.
Lashley could choose to withdraw from the portal and return to Tuscaloosa for the 2020 season and would likely compete for the starting right tackle job with Wills having departed for the NFL draft. Should Lashley transfer to a new school the Crimson Tide would enter the 2020 season with 15 offensive linemen.
