Kansas quarterback Montell Cozart will be playing in a different uniform. The senior announced today on Twitter that he would be transferring for using his final year of eligibility elsewhere.
In Cozart’s statement, he thanks many people who have helped him throughout his collegiate career and wishes the university best. It doesn’t appear that any ill-will exists between Cozart and the university or its coaching staff.
The likeliest reason for his transfer is that he is hoping to get more playing time elsewhere and establish a name for himself ahead of the NFL draft.

Cozart’s time at Kansas has been marked with inconsistency and an inability to take advantage of opportunities.
Playing in only parts of each season, the highest number of games he has started in one season is seven; which he did in the 2013 and 2016 season. He finishes his career at Kansas with a 2,755 yards passing and a 14-19 touchdown-to-interception ratio.
