South Carolina’s depleted receiving corps has taken yet another hit.
On Twitter Tuesday, K.J. Brent announced that he will be transferring out of the Gamecocks football program to an undetermined location for his final season of college football. As he will be a graduate transfer, Brent will be eligible to play immediately in 2015 if he transfers to an FBS school and enrolls in a grad program not offered at USC.
Below is the missive Brent posted on the social media website yesterday evening.
In 2014, Brent played in all 13 games, catching nine passes for 11 yards and a touchdown. Behind Pharoh Cooper (42-1,136-9), Brent would’ve been the Gamecocks’ second-leading returning wide receiver; with Brent gone, that honor now falls to Shamier Jeffery and his two receptions for nine yards.
