In a lengthy Twitter post, TCU backup quarterback Foster Sawyer announced his intuition to transfer to another school this offseason. Sawyer sat behind Texas A&M transfer Kenny Hill for the majority of the season and only recorded 55 pass attempts the entire season.
Sawyer will likely look for a program in need of a quarterback and that will give him the opportunity to compete for a starting position right away.
“After a lot of thought and prayer, I am announcing that I will be transferring from Texas Christian University,” Sawyer wrote. “This has been one of the more difficult decisions I’ve had to make. I want to thank Coach Patterson, Coach Cumbie, and the rest of the staff for giving me a chance to play for such a great program like TCU.
“Playing in Purple and White was a dream come true for me. I have made life long relationships in the locker room, and for that I will always be grateful.”

Sawyer is a redshirt sophomore and will have to sit out a year per the NCAA eligibility rules. That doesn’t appear to be a deterrent for the young man who no longer saw a future for himself in Fort Worth, Texas.
Sawyer didn’t mention any of the teams he was considering transferring to, but he is sure to have plenty of options.
