According to College Football Talk, Ole Miss sophomore quarterback DeVante Kincade will transfer from the school.
Kincade announced his intentions on Instagram Tuesday saying he wants to move closer to his home state of Texas.
“I just wanted to thank god and the university of Mississippi for the opportunity to get a education, chase my dream and grow as a man,” he wrote. “I ran into people and built relationship with people that I will never forget and memories that I will go back in time and do it all over again, But I am Transferring some where closer to Tx. And I could take care of my mom. I found Christ here at Olemiss by far the best achievement Of my life and I will never forgot the people that gave me advice through my tough times being away from home when I was loosing close ones. But Thank you @olemissathletics and #rebelNation for the support y’all are the best Travel everywhere !!!!
Kincade was a three-star member of the Ole Miss’s 2013 recruiting class and served as Bo Wallace’s backup that year. He engaged in a three-way battle with Kelly and Ryan Buchanan.
