Mizzou backup QB Eddie Printz leaving as grad transfer

Missouri backup quarterback Eddie Printz is leaving the program as a graduate transfer, according to Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

No reason has been given for the redshirt sophomore’s decision, but he will be immediately eligible to play wherever he transfers and will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Printz’s decision comes on the heels of Tigers starter Maty Mauk being suspended indefinitely after video surfaced of him appearing to snort drugs. If he does not return to the team, plus with Printz’s departure, Missouri will only have two scholarship quarterbacks in Drew Lock, who started the final two thirds of the 2015 season, and Marvin Zanders. Simply put, the timing of Printz’s decision does not help Missouri.

A former three-star recruit from the Atlanta area, Printz is a pure pocket passer with solid size at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds. Before committing to Missouri, he had offers in hand from plenty of schools including Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Kentucky and UCLA.

Printz has given no indication as to where he may be looking to play next, but stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on his future!
