“It doesn’t have anything to do with coach (Paul) Johnson or anything,” he said. “Everyone has their own reasons. I know I’m going to graduate and get out, and that was just my thing, but I’ve talked with a lot of the guys that have (transferred), and none of them rushed their decisions. It was all just something that was best for them. I support all of them. People on the team support them.”
Klock became the eighth player to transfer since the end of the regular season, or, in his case, make plans to do so. He said he has official visits lined up, but declined to identify them. He said he was considering a number of Patriot League schools, but was disappointed to learn that the FCS league does not accept graduate transfers.
He said he plans to make a decision within the next six weeks.
Klock expressed thanks to Tech coaches, starting with Paul Johnson and offensive line coach Mike Sewak, and support staff such as sports medicine director Jay Shoop, strength-and-conditioning coach John Sisk and academic support director Chris Breen. Klock said Johnson gave him a full release.
“I thank him for everything,” Klock said of Johnson. “This is such a good opportunity to come down here and live in Atlanta and play in the ACC. It meant a lot to me.”
