Former Gamecocks QB Connor Mitch announces transfer

Last month, it was announced that South Carolina quarterback Connor Mitch would be transferring before the 2016 season began. Considering that he hardly ever saw the field in Columbia, it’s not surprising that Mitch would want to transfer. He flashed a lot of potential in the handful of games that he did play in, but just could not keep up with the rest of the competition at the position.

Mitch became a part of the team in 2013, and started a few games before suffering a shoulder injury. Monday, Mitch broke the news on just where he would be transferring to.

The QB will find a home at James Madison, where he will have two seasons of eligibility left. Mitch took to Twitter to make the announcement, also thanking the community, teammates, coaches, and friends.

The now former Gamecocks QB finished out the 2015 season completing 13 of his 29 passes for 165 yards and a single touchdown. He assumes immediate eligibility with the JMU Dukes.
