The quarterback position continues to be a problem for the Missouri.
Redshirt junior quarterback Eddie Printz is set to transfer from the program, his family confirmed to PowerMizzou.com’s Pete Scantlebury.
In a statement released to the website, Printz only offered positive takeaways from his time in Columbia, Mo., but he has other plans for his remaining years as a graduate student.
“I would like to thank The University of Missouri, Coach Odom, the current and previous coaching staff, my MIZZOU Teammates, The Tiger Scholarship Fund, the great fans of MIZZOU Football and everyone involved with Missouri Football for the opportunity the university gave me to attend and play football on scholarship. After May 15 when I receive my diploma from the Trulaske College of Business at The University of Missouri I will be transferring as a graduate student.”
Printz appeared in eight games for Missouri in 2015, but did not attempt a pass.
The quarterback’s transfer announcement comes just days after Maty Mauk was suspended a third time from the team.
When Mauk was suspended during the season, true freshman Drew Lock got the nod under center. Lock led the Tigers to a 2-6 record, and Printz served as his primary backup.
