Alabama Wide Receiver Isaiah Bond Enters Transfer Portal Following Nick Saban's Retirement

Alabama wide receiver Isaiah Bond has entered the transfer portal in the wake of coach Nick Saban‘s retirement.

Bond led Alabama with 48 catches, producing 668 yards and four touchdowns. That included a fourth-and-31 score that proved the game-winning touchdown against rival Auburn.

He could still opt to stay in Tuscaloosa.

Jermaine Burton, who led the Tide with 798 yards and eight touchdowns, has already decided to turn pro instead of using his fifth year of eligibility.

Receivers Ja'Corey Brooks and Malik Benson had entered the transfer portal before Saban announced his retirement on Wednesday. Brooks transferred to Louisville and Benson to Florida State.

The top returning receiver if Bond doesn’t opt to return would be tight end Amari Niblack, who had 20 catches for 327 yards.
