Jalen Hurts has gotten a lot less playing time this season than he did in 2017, which means he has had fewer opportunities to showcase himself to NFL teams. Despite that, Nick Saban still believes the junior is managing to boost his stock.

On his weekly radio show on Tide 102.9 FM Thursday, Saban spoke about Hurtsa€™ decision to not transfer after Tua Tagovailoa took over the starting job. He spoke highly of Hurts and the strides he has made under new quarterbacks coach Dan Enos.

a€œTo me, Jalen has made a lot of improvement as a quarterback this year even though hea€™s not the starter because hea€™s got a really good coach, wea€™ve a really good offensive system, and the very thing that he needed to improve on, he has improved on dramatically even though hea€™s not the starter,a€ Saban said,A as transcribed by Mike Zenitz of AL.com.
