Sophomore quarterback Seth Collins has decided to transfer from Oregon State, the university announced on Friday.

“Seth has made the decision to transfer and we wish him good luck,” head coach Gary Anderson said in a statement.

“I thank Oregon State for a great year,” Collins said in the school's release. “But it is in my best interest to pursue my education and football somewhere else.”

The quarterback suffered a knee injury in October and missed four games. Upon his return, he was moved to wide receiver and running back and also took a few snaps at quarterback. In his final game against Oregon, he finished with three rushing touchdowns, 39 rushing yards and 45 passing yards.
