John Tsimis‘ has indeed decided to continue his playing career, albeit at a lower rung on the college football ladder.
On his Instagram account Wednesday, Tsimis announced that, after he graduates from Rutgers in June, he will be transferring to Towson “to exercise my 5th year of eligibility and pursue a [Master’s] degree.” As the wide receiver will be coming in as a graduate transfer as well as the fact that the Tigers play at the FCS level, Tsimis will be immediately eligible.
Tsimis was honored on the Scarlet Knights’ Senior Night late last season, but had been waffling on whether to continue his career somewhere other than Piscataway.
“I would like to thank everyone who was involved in my career at Rutgers over the last four years,” Tsimis wrote on the social media website. “Although it didn’t always go the way I wanted it to on the field, I had a great experience and if given the opportunity I would choose Rutgers again.”
During his four seasons with the Scarlet Knights, Tsimis caught 36 passes for 348 yards and three touchdowns. Last season, he had 11 receptions for 94 yards.
