TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Nick Saban has a starting quarterback returning to Alabama for the first time since 2013. If he's feeling more comfortable because of that, it didn't show Tuesday after the first spring practice.
"Well, we have one year of experience - all of our quarterbacks combined," Saban said. "So that's more of a dynamic than having the starting quarterback back."
Two early-enrolled freshmen are competing for the chance to back up quarterback Jalen Hurts: Mac Jones and Tua Tagovailoa. Saban said he thought all three passers had the potential to develop into really good players.
