Alabama has hit the transfer portal for a tight end.

Former North Carolina tight end Carl Tucker announced on Twitter Wednedsay night that he will spend his final season of college football with the Crimson Tide. In his time as a Tar Heel, Tucker caught 36 passes for 549 yards and four touchdowns.

Tucker was a three-star prospect out of William Amos Hough High School in Cornelius, North Carolina, when he chose the Tar Heels. Tucker played in four seasons with the Tar Heels but received an additional year of eligibility via NCAA waiver due to injuries, much like Alabama linebacker Joshua McMillon did. Tucker entered the transfer portal on Dec. 30.

The addition of Tucker gives UA a loaded tight end room with three notabkle returners from last season: Miller Forristall, Major Tennison and Jahleel Billingsley. UA also has former walk-on Giles Amos and converted linebacker Cameron Latu, who played in nine and 11 games, respectively, plus signee Caden Clark.
