Quarterback Jeremy Moussa has decided to leave the Warriors and transfer to a junior college, head coach Nick Rolovich confirmed to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
Moussa, who joined the Warriors as an early admission in January 2018, played in two games in 2018 — a limitation that enabled him to redshirt and still have four seasons of eligibility remaining. He completed four of nine passes for 77 yards and a touchdown.
Despite having the strongest arm among the UH quarterbacks, Moussa faced a spring semester in which fourth-year junior Cole McDonald and second-year freshman Chevan Cordeiro would be atop the depth chart. Last month, the Warriors signed quarterback Zach Daniel of The Kinkaid School in Houston.
“I think he’s got the ability to be a great quarterback,” Rolovich said of Moussa. “I appreciate his maturity and how he handled the situation. We wish him nothing but the best. He gave us everything he had while he was here, and we hate to see him go. I understand the situation.”
