Jalen Alexander Hurts (born August 7, 1998) is an American football quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL).
Jalen played his first three seasons of college football at the University of Alabama, where he made two consecutive College Football National Championship appearances and was a member of the team that won the 2018 title.
Hurts used his final year of eligibility at the University of Oklahoma where he quarterbacked the Oklahoma Sooners to the 2019 Big 12 Conference title and an appearance in the 2019 College Football Playoff.
At Oklahoma, Hurts was a finalist for the 2019 Heisman Trophy, finishing second in the voting.
Near the end of his rookie season, Hurts—who the Eagles selected in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft—became a starter. Leading the Eagles to the top seed in their conference and a Super Bowl appearance in 2022, he had a breakout season that earned him Pro Bowl and second-team All-Pro recognition.
