Quarterback Jalen Milroe said Thursday he’s returning to Alabama for a final season in 2024.

He made the announcement on “The Next Round,” saying, “Yea, I’m coming back for my senior year.”

Milroe took over as the Crimson Tide starter from Bryce Young, who was selected No. 1 overall in the 2023 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. He finished sixth in Heisman Trophy balloting.

Before thinking about the 2024 season, Milroe has unfinished business: leading No. 4 Alabama (12-1) against No. 1 Michigan (13-0) in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1 in one College Football Playoff semifinal.

This season, Milroe has passed for 2,718 yards and 23 touchdowns with six interceptions. He also has run for 468 yards and 12 scores.

He started 12 games, missing the Week 3 win over South Florida after coach Nick Saban briefly benched him following a loss to Texas in which he threw two interceptions.

Earlier this month, Saban credited Milroe for his in-season improvement.

“Jalen’s done a fantastic job for us,” Saban said. “His transition and improvement as a player has certainly been a huge factor on the success of our team.”
