Indiana redshirt-sophomore pro-style QB Austin King is transferring

Quarterback Austin King was once in the running to be Indiana’s next starting signal caller. On Friday, it was announced he would transfer from the university.

Indiana coach Tom Allen told the media on Friday that King, a redshirt-sophomore quarterback from Alpharetta, Georgia, would be transferring. Shortly after Allen’s announcement, King posted a statement via Twitter.

King came to Indiana in the 2015 recruiting class. He rated was a 3-star prospect and ranked as the 30th-best pro-style quarterback in the nation, as well as the 83rd-best prospect in the state of Georgia.

He did not say where he would be transferring to.

King, who did not appear in a game for Indiana in his two years as a Hoosier, held 15 scholarship offers coming out of high school, and ultimately enrolled at Indiana over offers from West Virginia, South Florida and N.C. State.

King’s transfer leaves Indiana with four quarterbacks on its roster. This includes senior starting quarterback Richard Lagow.
