Former Plant QB Phillip Ely Transfers
It was a business decision that had to be made, said Ely, a sophomore who will have two years of eligibility remaining at Toledo after sitting out the required season in 2013 under NCAA transfer rules. I was very thankful with how Alabama was upfront with me.
I feel great about the decision. I'm very happy.
Ely appeared in six games as a redshirt freshman last season for the Crimson Tide, backing up A.J. McCarron. He completed 3-of-4 passes, including a 27-yard touchdown against Mississippi State.
