In a move that has been expected since the end of the season, if not longer, quarterback Anu Solomon has announced his intention to transfer for a graduate season at another school.
Solomon had a strong freshman season, throwing for 3,793 yards with 28 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
His following season looks good on paper as well, as he totaled 20 touchdowns and only five picks. However, a closer look reveals that only seven of those touchdowns and four of those interceptions came in Pac-12 play.
This past season, Solomon struggled with a concussion and threw two interceptions in the season opener against BYU before having to sit out six games.
He found himself behind Brandon Dawkins on the depth chart and injured his ankle against Oregon State, thus being forced to miss the ASU game.
Solomon’s knee injury and concussions have caused him to lose confidence and it looked as if it would be difficult for him to get substantial playing time next season with Brandon Dawkins and Khalil Tate having one more year of experience in addition to highly regarded freshman Braxton Burmeister coming in.
