Former Baylor quarterback Zach Smith has found his new football home. On Monday, Tulsa announced it has officially added Smith to the football program as one of six December signees who are now attending classes at Tulsa starting this week.
Smith will have to sit out the 2018 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but he will eventually help pad the quarterback depth for the program once he becomes available. A year off from playing also gives Smith time to adjust to his new program, learn the playbook, and establish a new relationship with his new teammates. Smith made the decision to transfer out of Baylor in December after the season ended in Waco.
Smith started 10 games for Baylor, including four in 2016 in place of an injured Seth Russell. Smith started six additional games for Baylor this past season. He left Baylor with 2,997 passing yards and 21 touchdowns for the Bears.
