Trey Amos is headed to Tuscaloosa.
The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns redshirt junior cornerback — who had entered his name into the NCAA Transfer Portal on May 1st— announced his decision on social media Tuesday afternoon that he was officially transferring to the University of Alabama football program.
Amos is coming off his first season as a full-time starter and the former Catholic High of New Iberia star had career highs in total tackles (35), solo tackles (26) and pass deflections (8).
In his three seasons with the Ragin’ Cajuns, the 6-foot-1, 197-pound cornerback appeared in 34 games, recording 59 tackles (46 solo), 14 pass deflections, one forced fumble, and one interception.
Amos is the latest player to begin his career with UL but end it with a team residing in the Southeastern Conference.
In the 2022 offseason, offensive guard O’Cyrus Torrence and running back Montrell Johnson transferred to play at Florida for former Ragin’ Cajuns head coach Billy Napier.
Then cornerback Mekhi Garner and wide receiver Kyren Lacy both transferred to LSU.
Amos was a multi-sport star at Catholic High where he helped the Panthers to a 2017 state championship in football and then a runner-up finish in 2018.
Amos also was a letterman in basketball and track and field, including winning the Class 2A state championship in the long jump.
Amos had received multiple offers from FBS programs, including Oklahoma, Miami, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon, Texas A&M, and LSU among others.
