Nigel Knott’s football career will continue, just not at the University of Alabama.

In September, the former UA defensive back had his football career cast into question when he was medically disqualified by the UA staff. When UA coach Nick Saban announced it, he said Knott would stay in school and finish his degree, but since then, Knott has been cleared to play football. Knott announced on his Twitter account Monday morning that he will enter the transfer portal.

Knott played in 12 games at UA after redshirting in 2016, playing 10 times in 2017 and twice in 2018.  The Madison, Mississippi, native missed spring practice in 2019 before being medically disqualified for the season.

Former UA defensive back Jared Mayden outlined what UA can have in the secondary in 2020, doing so after a Senior Bowl practice in Mobile.
