Syracuse Transfer Considering Crimson Tide
Jalen Carey, a 6-foot-3 point guard out of Syracuse entered the transfer portal on March 16. Carey only played in two games this past season for the Orange after enduring a thumb injury. Carey has listed Marquette, Creighton, Rhode Island, Uconn, Alabama, Georgetown and BYU as future destinations according to The Athletic's Matthew Gutierrez.
Carey is looking for an opportunity where more playing time is possible and given that he played his last game for the Orange in mid-November in 2019 he could gain eligibility in 2020.
Carey was a four-star recruit in 2018 out of Immaculate Conception in New York and chose Syracuse over Uconn and Seton Hall.
He averaged, 12 minutes, 3.3 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1 assist in 27 games for Syracuse.
Should he choose to transfer to Alabama, it would put the Crimson Tide at 12 scholarship players with still no official word on the status of Herb Jones and John Petty Jr. If both Alabama players wish to return to school the Crimson Tide would need to open up one scholarship to accept all three players.
