Alabama back-up quarterback Philip Ely is to transfer to Toledo, the player said on his Twitter account.

He said: “Ready to make a change in my life for the better and I thank everyone who has supported me through this process. Go Rockets!

He added: “And a special thanks to my former teammates at bama. I love and will miss ya’ll! Goodluck this year and go get number 3!!

The redshirt sophomore obviously doesn’t see a lot of hope of seeing playing time behind current QB AJ McCarron. Aaron Murray and Ely both attended Plant High School in Tampa, FL.

He threw only 4 passes in anger for the Tide last year, completing three of them with a touchdown. That’s pretty good accuracy.
