Following a disappointing 2016 season at Missouri, Tigers QB Marvin Zanders decided it was in his best interest to transfer out of Columbia to continue his football career.
And on Monday, the former Mizzou quarterback decided on his next destination.
According to a report from 247Sports, the dual-threat signal caller committed to transfer to Virginia after a visit to Charlottesville over the the weekend. He reportedly confirmed that decision via his Twitter account, which is marked as private.
According to The Virginian-Pilot, Zanders is on pace to graduate from Missouri in May and is planning to be a graduate transfer at Virginia. The redshirt sophomore would be available to play for the Cavaliers and coach Bronco Mendenhall this fall, and should have two years of eligibility remaining.
Zanders completed 10 of 12 passes for 114 yards and a touchdown playing behind Tigers starter Drew Lock during the 2016 season. He rushed for 83 yards and two touchdowns during a blowout victory against Delaware State.
