Missouri graduate WR Chris Black said that he's looking forward to a "breath of fresh air" after transferring from Alabama in February.
"I felt like I just needed a breath of fresh air, a new start. I made the right choice. Coach Heupel, Coach Hill are all great dudes, so I’m just glad to be here," Black said. The 6-foot, 192-pounder was a predictably juicy recruit in 2012, ranked by Rivals as the No. 58 overall prospect in the country. He caught just 25 passes for 290 yards and a pair of touchdowns in his three seasons with the Crimson Tide, though, leading to his eventual transfer from the champs. Missouri HC Barry Odom likes what he's seen to this point, saying that "he’s taken a tremendous responsibility in trying to lead our team and that side of the ball and that receiver group."

Alabama graduate WR Chris Black transferred to Missouri.

Having already graduated, Black is eligible to play immediately in 2016. Expected to have an expanded role in 2015 following the departures of Amari Cooper, DeAndrew White and Christion Jones, Black instead caught only two passes for 23 yards while battling a nagging ankle issue and getting surpassed by transfer Richard Mullaney (54-600-4) and true freshman Calvin Ridley (75-893-5). Black was ranked as the No. 8 receiver in the country No. 58 player overall by Rivals back in 2012.

Alabama redshirt junior WR Chris Black will transfer.

Black dealt with injuries all season, namely an ankle issue that required surgery in November. The Crimson Tide seem to have their three top receivers set for next season in Calvin Ridley, Robert Foster and ArDarius Stewart.

Alabama redshirt junior WR Chris Black (ankle) will undergo season-ending surgery.

He suffered the nagging ankle injury during the summer. "He has tried and tried and tried to compete for us all year long," coach Nick Saban said. "He hasn't gotten to play a whole lot. Sometimes he felt better than others. But it's just been a nagging, reoccuring thing. We kind of all felt like the best that he could do was to go ahead and get it prepared." Black caught two balls in sporadic action over six games before deciding to shut it down. "He did everything he could for the team," Saban said. "He did everything he could to try to play. I know it was disappointing for him not to get to play more. But it was a lot to do with not being full speed all year long."

Alabama head coach Nick Saban announced that WRs Chris Black, ArDarius Stewert and Christion Jones will help replace senior WR DeAndrew White (shoulder).

White will be sidelined for a minimum of 1-2 weeks due to a separated shoulder. "On the WR rotation without DeAndrew White: Chris Black will see more time. ArDarius Stewert will also see some time and Christion Jones can slide over to play that spot," Saban said at Wednesday's press conference. White had six receptions for 73 yards against West Virginia prior to sustaining the injury. Black, Stewart and Jones combined for four receptions in that contest. Saban said Black "deserves" to play more than he did against the Mountaineers, and we'd expect him to be on the field most amongst the three mentioned replacements.

ESPN's Chris Low expects Alabama redshirt freshman WR Chris Black to make an impact this season.

Low also suggests true freshman tight end O.J. Howard will make a name for himself. Black should see plenty of targets opposite Amari Cooper, and although A.J. McCarron leans towards the limited side on vertical passes, he locates a large number of targets throughout each game. Despite possessing arguably the top receiver crop in the conference, expect Alabama to remain a run first offense.

Alabama freshman WR Chris Black will miss three or four months after undergoing surgery for his injured shoulder.

"He's going to be an excellent player for us in the future," head coach Nick Saban said. This will certainly put Black behind, and a medical redshirt is not out of the question, especially in Alabama's run first offense.
