The transfer train running in and out of Lawrence continues running this week, with a member of Kansas’ defense deciding to take his leave of the Jayhawks.
According to the Lawrence Journal-World, offensive lineman Chad Kolumber recently decided to transfer out of the football program. The paper notes that several media outlets in Virginia have reported that Kolumber is transferring to Richmond.
Kolumber himself tweeted a photo of his acceptance packet to the school over the weekend.
As the Spiders are a Div. 1-AA (FCS) program, Kolumber, who played in five games as a redshirt freshman last season, will be eligible to play immediately.
As noted by the Journal-World, Kolumber becomes the 23rd player with eligibility still remaining who has left the program since Charlie Weis took over for Turner Gill. The Jayhawks have also added at least five players who have transferred into the program, three of whom will be eligible to play immediately.
