NORMAN, Okla. - Norman could soon be left with one less signal caller.
Backup quarterback Kendal Thompson took to Twitter Tuesday night, letting fans know of his plans to transfer following his May graduation.
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— Kendal Thompson (@Thurm405) January 22, 2014
another path in store for me. I will be graduating in May, and transferring to play at another college next season. #WalkByFaithNotBySight— Kendal Thompson (@Thurm405) January 22, 2014
Once in contention for the Sooners starting job, the fleet of foot lefty never got out of the gate in 2013, fracturing his right foot a month before the team's first game.
Thompson would throw only 13 passes on the year, and following the Sooners Trevor Knight-led Sugar Bowl upset of a vaunted Alabama squad last month, it wasn't likely the Oklahoma City native would find himself in a quarterback competition to start 2014.
