According to a report from ESPN, Kansas State Wildcats QB-turned-WR Daniel Sams has been granted his release from the university and will be transferring to a football program at the FCS level where he will be able to avoid sitting out the required one season.
Quarterback turned wide receiver Daniel Sams confirmed with ESPN.com through Twitter message Monday night that he will be transferring from Kansas State after the semester.
Sams saw bits and pieces of playing time in 2012 behind Heisman finalist Collin Klein, and was expected to be the starter in 2013. However, he ultimately ended up losing the position battle to JUCO transfer Jake Waters prior to the season getting underway.
He did split some time last year with Waters as head coach Bill Snyder decided to utilize every bit of talent that he had on his roster, although in the time that he did see, Sams was less than impressive. In the 13 games last year, he was only 38-of-53 passing for four touchdowns with four interceptions.
But, he did finish the year with 808 yards rushing, which prompted Snyder to move him to wide receiver during the spring this year, which now we can assume he probably didn’t warm up to all that well.
