Texas A&M graduate and Aggie quarterback Matt Joeckel will take advantage of an NCAA transfer rule to pursue his final year of athletic eligibility at another institution.
"Matt is a great Aggie and he has decided to transfer," Aggie head football coach
Kevin Sumlin said. "We wish him all the best."
Joeckel earned his undergraduate degree from the Mays Business School at Texas A&M
"I have loved my four and a half years at Texas A&M," Joeckel said. "I am glad I had
the opportunity to play for Coach Sumlin, Coach (Jake) Spavital and the rest of the
coaches. I am proud to have my degree from the Mays Business School and I'll always
consider myself a member of the Aggie family."
Joeckel battled with sophomore Kenny Hill and true freshman sensation Kyle Allen for the starting job this spring, but practice observers felt that Hill and Allen would be the finalists for the spot in the fall.
Initial reports indicate that SMU and TCU are possible destinations for the Arlington native.
