Redshirt sophomore quarterback Conner Manning has announced his decision to transfer from Utah. Manning has already graduated and would be eligible to play immediately wherever he ends up. Manning, a three-star recruit from Lake Forest, Calif., did not fit what Utah has been looking for lately in a quarterback with their read option, dual-threat quarterback offense. Manning is an accurate passer, but he lacks the running ability the Utah coaches want in a QB. Manning likely would not have played for Utah this year. In fact, Manning's only appearance for Utah was in Utah's 42-10 defeat against Arizona in 2014. Manning came in late in the game and completed 2-of-6 passes for 28 yards and one interception. This is a good move for both Manning and Utah. Manning will be able to play elsewhere in an offense that fits his skill set better, and Utah gets a scholarship. I have interacted with Manning on several occasions, and I always came away impressed by how he conducted himself. I wish him the best of luck wherever he ends up.
