After three seasons fighting for playing time in a talented Alabama backfield, running back Trey Sanders is headed to Fort Worth.

The former five-star running back, who was one of the top players in the 2019 recruiting class, announced his commitment to TCU on Thursday. The transfer has two more years of eligibility.

Sanders appeared in four games during the Crimson Tide’s 2020 national championship season before assuming a larger role in ’21. He was the team’s second-leading rusher last season, totaling 314 yards and two touchdowns on 72 carries.

Sanders was limited to just 14 carries this season. He’s the third Alabama player to transfer to TCU in this cycle, joining offensive lineman Tommy Brockermeyer and wide receiver JoJo Earle.

During their run to the national championship game, TCU’s offense has blossomed into one of the best in the country. The Horned Frogs’ leading rusher, Kendre Miller, is a junior, while backup running back Emari Demercado is a senior.
