Connor Wood worked hard to become a Texas Longhorn quarterback but faced stiff competition.

Update 8/30: It's official as the University issues a press release announcing Wood's transfer.  Hook 'em, Connor, and good luck to you.

As has been reported here and on other Texas boards, all-around athlete and Longhorn redshirt freshman quarterback Conner Wood has all but released the transfer papers to the media.  SBNation is running with the story and Hookem 24/7 ($) is reporting that Connor's dad has confirmed his son will become a Colorado Buffalo.

Wood battled for the starting job against two untested and one bested quarterback after the Longhorns' first losing season since John Mackovic's last as head coach. 

Wood was really on the outside looking in for the quarterback race despite his dedication to improving his skills attending one quarterback camp after another during the offseason.  In spite of the training, second-hand reporting of his live practice action told of inconsistency and inaccuracy, traits that are minimum requirements at the position.

Longhorn nation wishes nothing but the best for Connor Wood and hopes he can work into a system where his talents are accentuated.
