Arizona quarterback Daxx Garman asked out of his scholarship in November, and he's already found a new school. The freshman is going home, as he'll be transferring to Oklahoma State. As per the rules, Garman will have to sit out the 2012 season but will be eligible to play for Oklahoma State in 2013 as a sophomore.
"I'm getting the opportunity to move closer to home," Garman told The Arizona Republic. "My family can be more involved in the situation, and I felt like it's a better opportunity for me. Oklahoma State, they have a great football environment. The fans are great people there, and they support the Oklahoma State football program completely. I'm very excited to be a part of that."
Garman did not play for Arizona as a true freshman this season, taking a redshirt instead.
This won't be the first time Garman has had to sit on the sidelines due to a transfer, as he faced similar problems while still in high school. Garman and his father moved to Texas from Oklahoma before his senior season of high school so that he could play football at Southlake Carroll. However, Garman was ruled ineligible to play his senior season at the high school since it was deemed he had only moved to Texas to play football at Southlake Carroll, which is against the rules in the state of Texas.
Now he'll be forced to sit out a season for moving back home to Oklahoma.
