In what has been a week full of transfers and commitments, this one has to be the most shocking to say the least. Virginia quarterback Greyson Lambert has asked for a release from the program and will transfer if it is granted.
Lambert’s high school coach Jody Grooms told College Football Talk that Colorado State has reached out to Greyson about moving his talents to Fort Collins. This seems to be an interesting spot for him to land for two reasons: 1. Garrett Grayson, former CSU QB, was just drafted so the position is open and 2. Mike Bobo took the head coaching job there just two months ago.
The request for release comes on the heels of Virginia’s spring training sessions that saw Matt Johns grab the starting position for the Cavaliers this fall. Johns and Lambert both shared the position in 2014. The season saw Lambert start nine of the team’s twelve games and throw eleven interceptions and only ten touchdowns.
Lambert posted a heartfelt message on Twitter from his hometown of Jesup, Georgia.
