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.”

Because he will be graduating, under NCAA rules, he will be eligible to play at whichever school he chooses to transfer to immediately.
When he does transfer, though, it will be the third school of the former five-star talents career. Heaps transferred to Kansas from BYU back in 2012.
This move was expected since head coach Charlie Weis announced that Montell Cozart would be the team’s starting quarterback for the 2014 season.
In addition to Heaps transferring, the school also announced that running back Darrian Miller would be leaving the program for “personal reasons,” and wide receiver Andrew Turzilli, who graduated from the school in May, would also be opting to transfer.
