This really should not come as a surprise after losing his starting quarterback job and being booed by the Texas faithful. Texas quarterback Garrett Gilbert, who lost his starting job after two games and then had season-ending shoulder surgery, plans to transfer. Gilbert was given an unconditional release from his scholarship to find another school. In a statement released Wednesday, Gilbert did not say where he planned to go, but indicated he has visited several schools and will visit more while finishing this semester at Texas.
For Gilbert he did not really get the support he needed it seems. Once Colt McCoy's brother came to Texas it seems things changed for Gilbert. He has talent and he will land on his feet somewhere. He was thrusted into the National spotlight in the National Championship game, and it seems he has not fully recovered form that at times. He will be fine, but will not longer be a Texas Longhorn where he hoped to finish his college career.
