It’s been speculated throughout the summer that former Kansas Jayhawks starting quarterback Jake Heaps may transfer when he graduates from Lawrence, and on Friday we learned that those indeed have been his intentions all along and he will be departing the program, according to the Kansas City Star.
Heaps will graduate from the school later this month, and in a brief statement, he expressed how much he valued his time with the Kansas football program.
“I am very grateful for the opportunity given to me by Coach Weis to play football and earn my college degree at the University of Kansas,” said Heaps. “My wife and I have truly enjoyed being part of the Jayhawk community. We have made lifelong friends through this experience and we will always consider ourselves Jayhawks.”
