The college football transfer portal spring window opened on Tuesday and the Alabama Crimson Tide is already off to a good start. It was appeared to be a mere formality, Kadyn Proctor has announced his intentions to transfer from Iowa to Alabama for the upcoming season, according to On3 Sports.

Proctor teased the move back to Alabama in May, but had to wait until today to officially file the paperwork and begin the process of transferring back to Tuscaloosa.

The 6-foot-7, 360-pound tackle came to Tuscaloosa as the highest rated tackle in the Class of 2023, choosing Alabama over Iowa out of high school. He started every game at left tackle for the Crimson Tide in 2023, earning Freshman All-American status for his efforts. Proctor put his name into the transfer portal shortly after Nick Saban announced his retirement and quickly decided that returning to Iowa was in his best interest. That decision was short lived, however, as he'll transfer back to the Capstone before taking a single snap for the Hawkeyes.

The Crimson Tide will return three starters along its offensive line for 2024, including Proctor, creating high expectations for a unit that gave up a school record 48 sacks last season.
