Georgia WR Jermaine Burton transfers to Alabama

For the second consecutive offseason, Alabama has added a wide receiver that they faced in the national title game. Jameson Williams was wildly successful, and the Tide will now hope to get similar production from Georgia transfer Jermaine Burton.

Burton, a native of Atlanta, is ranked the No. 9 available transfer in the portal. The 6-foot, 200-pounder was in Tuscaloosa on Saturday for an unofficial visit prior to announcing his intentions. He’s the third impact transfer to join UA’s roster ahead of the 2022 season, teaming up with former five-star cornerback and LSU transfer Eli Ricks and former Georgia Tech running back Jahmyr Gibbs.
