Holden has played in 10 games this season, recording 25 catches for 331 yards and six touchdowns, tying him for second most receiving scores on the team.
The former four-star recruit from California didn’t play in 2020, but recorded 21 catches for 239 yards in 2021.
Joining Holden will be Christian Leary, a former four-start recruit out of Florida. Leary has only caught three passes during his two years with the Crimson Tide.
I want to thank The University of Alabama and the coaching staff for an unforgettable 2 years. Thank you for the opportunity and the knowledge I have gained throughout that time, in saying that I will be entering the transfer portal.— Christian Leary (@ChristianLeary4) November 30, 2022
The announcements come following a regular season in which Alabama lost to LSU and Tennessee. Sixth-ranked ‘Bama will not be playing in this year’s SEC Championship Game and, instead, will have to wait to find out their postseason fate.
