Two SEC giants land grad transfers

Alabama has taken on their second graduate transfer this off-season. Gardner Minshew, a quarterback, joins the Crimson Tide from East Carolina. While other schools kicked the tires around Minshew, he's been linked to Alabama from day one. He's from Mississippi and played his college football in the JUCO ranks there before heading to East Carolina, so this move makes sense. He's likely being brought in for depth, as Alabama is currently a bit light when it comes to QB's. Minshew has a year of eligibility remaining, with the potential for a second year.

Meanwhile, Trevor Wood is taking his grad transfer to Texas A&M. Wood saw time at both tight end and on the defensive line for Arizona, but he's heading to College Station to play on offense. He was a role player for the Wildcats, but figures to be right in the mix under the new Aggies staff.
