When Jared Goff won the starting quarterback job out of fall camp, it meant Zach Kline was likely to be a casualty of the decision. That much was confirmed a few weeks back when he told Jeff Faraudo that he was planning to transfer.
Now we know where --Kerry Eggers at the Portland Tribune is reporting that Kline will head to Oregon State.
Eggers has more details:
The 6-2, 200-pound Kline, who played behind starter Jared Goff as a redshirt freshman this fall, will attend a junior college during winter and spring terms. Kline will transfer to OSU for either summer or fall term, sit out next season and be eligible as a sophomore in the 2015 season.
In case you're wondering, yes, it is a bit of an unorthodox move to allow an intraconference transfer, and in this case, an intradivision one, as well. What are your thoughts about Coach Dykes allowing that?
As always, we wish Zach the best with his future -- although probably not when playing Cal.
