Yes, punters are people too, which means they can transfer as well.
The latest example of what’s a rather rare phenomenon is Dylan Klumph, who announced on Twitter Friday night that he has decided to takes his leave of the Cal football program. Not only that, Klumph revealed his destination — Kevin Sumlin‘s Arizona Wildcats.
The punter will be leaving the Bears as a graduate transfer, giving him immediate eligibility at the Pac-12 school for what will be his final season.
Originally a junior college transfer who redshirted his 2015 season at Cal, Klumph has averaged 43.9 yards per punt the past two years. According to his official Cal bio, he’s the all-time leading punter in the school’s history.
Klumph’s 44.8 yards per punt average in 2016 was second in the conference and good for eighth nationally. This past season, he averaged 43 yards on his 46 punts.
Of his 96 career punts, 29 were placed inside of the 20-yard line and just six went into the end zone for touchbacks.
