Former California Golden Bears quarterback Zach Kline announced a few weeks ago that he would be leaving the Cal football team, but he won’t be going far to find a new home. According to reports from the Portland Tribune, Kline will be staying in the Pac-12 and transferring to Oregon State.
Kline recently informed the Oregon State coaching staff of his plans.
Thanks to NCAA transfer rules, Kline will be forced to sit out the 2014 college football season, but he intends on spending the next two semesters at the JUCO level before joining the Beavers for the summer and fall semesters next year.
Kline appeared in just seven games this past season after being beat out by true freshman Jared Goff for the starting job, but entering the spring ball he was considered by many to be the favorite.
Kline will be eligible to play for the Beavers in 2015.
