Why did he transfer, again? Academics? Coach didn't think he deserved more time, etc?

Got injured, fell behind, and Coach said that he did not live up to his defensive specialist calling……..

Of note:

Looks like he will be playing with DeMonte Simpson again since he signed there as well!

Wish the best to both guys. I'm not going to search for my "told you so post" but when Jarvis signed all of those guys in those two years ago it was bound to happen that a few would transfer, there simply isn't enough playing time.
