Nick Saban makes another splash in the transfer portal.

Just a week after landing the top cornerback transfer in the country in former LSU corner Eli Ricks, Alabama has landed yet another big-time transfer.

Former Georgia Tech running back Jahmyr Gibbs, the top transfer running back in the country, announced on Tuesday that he will be transferring to Alabama.

Both Ricks and Gibbs were recruited by Ohio State coming out of high school. Ricks is rated as the top transfer cornerback and the No. 2 overall transfer player in the 2022 class while Gibbs is the top transfer running back and No. 4 overall transfer player in the 2022 class.

This comes a year after the Crimson Tide also landed transfer linebacker Henry To'o To'o from Tennessee – the top transfer player in the country last year and Ohio State's top transfer target – as well as former Ohio State wide receiver Jameson Williams, who went on to become one of three finalists for this year's Biletnikoff Award.
