Former Alabama wide receiver Mac Hereford joined the Crimson Tide as a preferred walk-on after attending Woodberry Forest high school in Birmingham, Alabama, but his time in the state is likely coming to an end as he looks to play elsewhere with his final year of collegiate eligibility.
Hereford graduated from the University of Alabama in December, he has since entered his name into the NCAA’s transfer portal in hopes of finding a new home at program where he can immediately showcase his talents for one more season.
Hereford has joined elite company in the Alabama wide receiver’s room, as he’s played alongside names such as Calvin Ridley, Jerry Jeudy, Henry Ruggs and other big-name talent.
His lack of appearances in the regular season tell a different tale than the videos he released on Twitter amidst the Coronavirus pandemic.
His name is known by many Crimson Tide fans, as he has been an active voice of Alabama football on social media.
In a time where the mass public is under quarantine and sports are at a standstill, Hereford gave the people some film to watch – all recorded pre-Coronavirus, of course.
He posted a series of clips of him performing drills that are run by former Alabama wide receivers coach, Josh Gattis, who now works as the offensive coordinator at Michigan.
