Staley was the No. 28 dual-threat QB in the class of 2014 and came from Marietta, Georgia. He was one of four candidates seeking to replace Dak Prescott. With Staley out of the picture, junior Damian Williams, sophomore Nick Fitzgerald, and redshirt freshman Nick Tiano are still vying to start the Bulldogs’ season-opener against Southern Alabama.
“We would like to thank Elijah for his contributions to our football team,” head coach Dan Mullen said in a press release last week. “During his time here, he has always been a hard worker and a great teammate. We wish him nothing but the best as he pursues another opportunity.”
