Former Kansas quarterback Montell Cozart committed Thursday to Boise State, where he will play his final college season this fall as a graduate transfer.
He will compete with three other quarterbacks on the Broncos roster: junior Brett Rypien, redshirt freshman Jake Constantine and true freshman Chase Cord.
Cozart, a Kansas City native who attended Bishop Miege High School, played four seasons for the Jayhawks. He started seven games in 2016, throwing for a team-high 1,075 yards with seven touchdowns and nine interceptions before getting replaced by Ryan Willis and Carter Stanley late in the year.
Never miss a local story.
In February, Cozart announced his decision to transfer.
“(I)t was a tough decision that brought along a lot of prayer, sleepless nights and meaningful talk with my family,” Cozart wrote. “I hope that I will still be accepted at Kansas for my time here as a Jayhawk.”
Cozart started games in each of his four seasons with KU. He has one year of eligibility remaining after he received a medical redshirt in 2015 following a shoulder injury.
