Washington redshirt freshman quarterback Troy Williams, a former four-star recruit from Los Angeles, will transfer to another school, UW announced Monday morning.
UW did not specify where Williams will transfer, but he’s expected to enroll at a junior college.
Williams made one start for the Huskies as a redshirt freshman this past season. In a 24-10 loss to Arizona State — in a game played in brutal wind conditions at Husky Stadium — Williams completed 18 of 26 passes for 139 yards with two interceptions.
A week earlier, Williams relieved an injured Cyler Miles in the fourth quarter at Oregon and engineered a 17-play, 75-yard scoring drive, capped by his 7-yard touchdown run.
In five games, Williams completed 23 of 36 passes for 179 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions.
He redshirted in 2013.
Williams’ departure leaves the Huskies with four quarterbacks on the roster: incumbent starter Cyler Miles, entering his junior season, plus junior Jeff Lindquist, redshirt freshman K.J. Carta-Samuels and true freshman Jake Browning, a four-star recruit from Folsom, Calif., who began classes at UW on Monday.
