Former Hoover football standout Christian Bell announced on Sunday his intention to transfer from the University of Alabama.
Bell took to Twitter to make the announcement, after enrolling at the Capstone in January.
"First, I want to thank the University of Alabama for the opportunity they gave me to be a Student-Athlete and I wanna also thank my teammates for many unforgettable moments," he said in his announcement.
Bell also thanked family, friends, coaches and teammates for their support during his time in Tuscaloosa.
Bell was part of three straight state championships (2012-2014) at Hoover, and finished his senior season (2014) with 33 tackles, five tackles for loss, four sacks and seven quarterback hurries.
He was asked to grayshirt last season, delaying his enrollment at Alabama until January.
