Keller Chryst Transfer: Ex-Stanford QB Joins Vols Football Program

Keller Chryst has made his transfer decision.

Late Thursday night, the former Stanford signal-caller announced that he has decided to join the Vols football program as a graduate transfer.

Chryst made the announcement with a simple message on social media that read, “Home sweet home.”

Go Vols!

During his time with the Cardinal, Chryst completed 160 of 289 passes (55.4 percent) forĀ 1,926 yards andĀ 19 touchdowns with six interceptions in just 23 games.

It will be an interesting storyline to watch as Chryst steps into an offense that is expected to shift from Butch Jones’ spread offense to a traditional pro-style, power-run scheme under first-year head coach Jeremy Pruitt. Chryst will be competing with Jarrett Guarantano, Will McBride and true freshman JT Shrout for the starting job.

The two returning Tennessee signal-callers are dual-threat quarterbacks, so Chryst could ultimately end up being the best option for Pruitt under center.

The Vols will kickoff their 2018 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 1 against the West Virginia Mountaineers.
