[1]TAMPA – After recently sitting down for an evaluation with Alabama coaches, former Plant High quarterback Phillip Ely has decided to transfer from the Crimson Tide to Toledo, effective immediately.

“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.
