Redshirt freshman wide receiver Zach Farrar has announced his intention to transfer away from the Oklahoma football program this year. Farrar announced his decision via Twitter over the weekend.
Per NCAA transfer rules, Farrar will have to sit out the 2017 season should he transfer to another FBS program, which makes him eligible to play again in 2018. He can play immediately this fall if he transfers to a lower division program at the FCS level or below (in which case he could still transfer to an FBS program and play in 2018 if he decided).
Where Farrar ends up remains to be seen. Prior to committing to Oklahoma during his recruiting process, Farrar had committed to Mississippi State. Other schools in the running for Farrar at the time in the Class of 2016 included Texas Tech and Oklahoma State. Whether he will be blocked from transferring to another Big 12 program is unknown at this time.
