Thompson announces he'll transfer

NORMAN, Okla. โ€” As many anticipated, there will be one fewer quarterback for OU next fall. Redshirt sophomore Kendal Thompson has announced he'll transfer to another school after graduating this spring.

Thompson tweeted in two messages: "Enjoyed the 3 years that I spent at OU and appreciate all the support and love that this program has shown me. But I believe that God has another path in store for me. I will be graduating in May, and transferring to play at another college next season."

The former Southmoore product saw his first action this season, completing his first pass and first touchdown against Iowa State.

He also came off the bench and completed 2-of-9 passes for 17 yards in the Bedlam game at Oklahoma State.

Thompson was one of five scholarship quarterbacks slated to take the field in spring ball, also including Trevor Knight, Blake Bell, Cody Thomas and early enrollee Justice Hansen.

Throw in Baker Mayfield, who has transferred from Texas Tech, enrolled and is planning on walking on, and it's mighty crowded back there.

There's no information yet on where he'll transfer to.
