For the second time in two days, a member of Alabama’s 2017 signing class has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

Crimson Tide linebacker Markail Benton, who was suspended from the team earlier in the offseason, went into the transfer portal Wednesday afternoon, AL.com has learned.

The former four-star recruit played in nine games for the Tide as a redshirt sophomore last season and finished the year with 19 tackles.

Benton’s entry into the transfer portal comes after fellow 2017 signing class member Tyrell Shavers went into the portal Tuesday evening.
