Alabama cornerback Antonio Kite latest to transfer…

After Kalen DeBoer is hired, Antonio Kite will join Dezz Ricks in the NCAA transfer portal.

He announced on Saturday that another Alabama cornerback will be using the NCAA transfer site.

After playing for the Tide for two seasons, Antonio Kite told On3 Sports that he intends to use the portal. He enters the portal on Saturday along with five-star freshman cornerback Dezz Ricks from Alabama.

Shortly before his inaugural press conference on Saturday, Kite made his decision following a squad meeting on Friday night under the direction of new Alabama coach Kalen DeBoer. Travaris Robinson, the secondary coach for Alabama, was hired by Georgia on Saturday as well to serve as the team’s co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach.

Kite, a four-star prospect from Anniston, Alabama, was ranked No. 227 nationally by 247 Sports in the 2022 class. After redshirting his first two games as a rookie, he played in seven games last season, primarily on special teams. In 2023, during pregame warm-ups, Kite was one of Alabama’s second-team cornerbacks, opposite Trey Amos.

He is the third athlete to use the transfer portal since it was reopened in the wake of Nick Saban’s retirement and the 20th player on Alabama’s 2023 roster to do so. Wide receiver Isaiah Bond and Ricks were the other two post-Saban portal arrivals.
