Nick Saban addressed the status of quarterback Blake Barnett hours after a report surfaced that he was transferring from Alabama.

"I know there's a lot swirling around about Blake Barnett," Saban said. "He did come to see today me before practice with some concerns about his future.

"You know, Blake is fine young man. He's done a great job in this program. We'd love to see him be a part of the program in the future but we also want him to what's best for him. I don't have a final decision on that."

Saban said he didn't know if Barnett is still with the team or not but that he would release a statement when he finds out.
