Houston QB D’Eriq King chooses the transfer portal after one year in a red shirt

-

Another big name has landed on the transfer portal. And this was expected for a long time.

During Monday night’s national championship game, Houston quarterback D’Eriq King announced that he was actually going for a transfer. This comes months after King decided on a red shirt after four games.

The NCAA’s updated red shirting rules allow a player to play up to four games and maintain one year of eligibility. Kelly Bryant followed this path in 2018 when he left Clemson after being benched in favor of Trevor Lawrence. Bryant then came to Missouri in 2019 as a red shirt senior. King will now follow the same path.

Unlike Bryant, King was never put on a bench. The 2019 season, the first in Houston under former West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen, was King’s third year as a starting quarter back. King is one of the top double-threat quarterbacks in the country. Just a few days before his red shirt decision was announced, King set an FBS record by aiming for both touchdown and touchdown in 15 consecutive games.

King started his career in Houston as a wide receiver before becoming a quarterback at the end of the 2017 season. In 2018, King threw for 2,982 meters and 36 touchdowns while hurrying for 674 meters and 14 more points. King recovered from a knee injury in late 2018 and was ready to go in week 1 of this year. In the four games he played in 2019, King created 663 overtaking spots, 312 rush spots and 12 touchdowns.

The possibility of King’s name landing on the transfer portal was there all season, and he shouldn’t be short of applicants from Power Five programs. He joins a group of available quarterbacks for graduate transfers, to which K.J. Costello (ex-Stanford), Anthony Brown (Boston College), Feleipe Franks (Florida) and Jett Duffey (Texas Tech).
