Alabama quarterback Phillip Ely will transfer to Toledo.
Because of NCAA transfer rules, Ely must sit out this season. He saw little action behind A.J. McCarron in 2012.
"I'm excited to get a fresh start somewhere. I learned a lot at Alabama and felt like I got all the support I could ask for from the coaches," Ely told Tidesports.com.
The Crimson Tide (13-1) have five QBs on their roster, but others could change positions as the process begins to find a successor for McCarron in 2014.
