Report: QB Richard Lagow transferring from UConn to Okla. St.

Richard Lagow

Yesterday, Richard Lagow confirmed via Twitter that he would be transferring from UConn in order to be closer to his family in Plano, Texas.

A day later, it appears that’s exactly what he’s done and extremely short order.

According to Damon Sayles of, Lagow has decided to transfer to Oklahoma State and continue his collegiate playing career.  Sayles confirmed the information with the player himself, who seemed to verify the move by retweeting Sayles announcing his decision.

UConn has not yet announced Lagow’s departure, and OSU has yet to confirm the quarterback’s addition to the Cowboys.

Lagow was a three-star member of UConn’s 2013 recruiting class.  While he said he was leaving to be closer to family, he also intimated that the logjam at his position played a role.

    Clever reply. He should have really given those 2 reasons more of a thought before signing his LoI. However OSU has a logjam, of sorts itself, at the QB position. Not quite understanding that reason if you’re going to leave 1 logjam for another. You would think if he wanted to be closer to home he would go to one of the many Texas schools. Out of all those there would be a better chance if starting. I do however understand getting out of the American Athletic Conf (I think that’s it’s name now), the Old Big Least, many called it. After this season it will no longer resemble it’s prior self and not in a good way at all. The Conf didn’t even get to keep it’s name…if that was even an issue. At least the kid didn’t hightail it out of there to College Station to try and take over for JM, who will be out of there as soon as maybe this year! Next for sure as this is his last season there. I’m kinda surprised the SEC wasn’t more of a draw…or an attraction at all. Anyway, even tho it looks as tho he won’t be the starter at UConn or OSU he’s better off in the Big12 than the AAC.
