The University of Houston announced that quarterback D’Eriq King will redshirt the rest of this season and come back in 2020. Last year, a new redshirt rule was put in place that allows players to appear in up to four games in a season and still take a redshirt, so they don’t lose a year of eligibility. King’s father told Houston’s FOX 26 that his son plans to transfer. King’s statement says he plans to stay at Houston, get his degree, and develop as a QB. He set the AAC single-season record with 50 total touchdowns in 2018. SI Now hosts Robin Lundberg and Amy Campbell weigh in on the decision.
