South Carolina redshirt freshman quarterback Tanner McEvoy has decided its time to move on.
McEvoy plans to transfer from the university, according to SportsTalk. Steve Spurrier made the announcement on Tuesday evening and here is the official release from USC:
University of South Carolina quarterback Tanner McEvoy has left the team and will seek a transfer to another school, head coach Steve Spurrier announced today.
“The Gamecock coaching staff and I wish Tanner all the best, as he continues his collegiate career elsewhere,” said Coach Spurrier.
McEvoy, a 6-6, 209-pound redshirt freshman quarterback from Hillsdale, N.J. was listed on the fourth-team entering the fall. He did not attend the Gamecocks’ practice on Tuesday morning.
McEvoy was recently in the news for his arrest in Charlotte for speeding and driving a vehicle after the consumption of alcohol. McEvoy is a minor and the charges are considered a misdemeanor. He was automatically suspended from the team but was reinstated before fall practice started this past Friday.
The 6'6" signal-caller from New Jersey was certainly an athletic prospect at the quarterback position and a guy that G.A. Mangus was excited about coaching. He was a raw prospect at the position with the potential to become a quality player.
There is no word on where he plans to transfer to at this time.
