QB Printz will transfer from Mizzou

Redshirt junior quarterback Eddie Printz will transfer from the Missouri football program, his family confirmed.

Printz released a statement to

"I would like to thank The University of Missouri, Coach Odom, the current and previous coaching staff, my MIZZOU Teammates, The Tiger Scholarship Fund, the great fans of MIZZOU Football and everyone involved with Missouri Football for the opportunity the university gave me to attend and play football on scholarship. After May 15 when I receive my diploma from the Trulaske College of Business at The University of Missouri I will be transferring as a graduate student."

Printz will graduate in May, but will not participate in spring practice for Missouri.

Printz met with head coach Barry Odom in December to start the process, and met again with Odom last week to confirm his intentions.

He is scheduled to graduate from Missouri in May, thus allowing him to transfer using the NCAA's graduate student waiver. He would have two years of eligibility remaining.

Printz, formerly a three-star recruit in the 2013 signing class, arrived at Missouri in January 2013 as an early enrollee from Lassiter High School in Marietta, Ga. After taking a redshirt in 2013, he attempted one pass in 2014 when he was the top back-up to Maty Mauk.

Printz served as the team's field-goal holder in 2015, and was tied on the depth chart as the No. 3-quarterback with Marvin Zanders.

Missouri now has two active scholarship quarterbacks on its roster, sophomore Drew Lock and Zanders,a redshirt sophomore. Redshirt senior Maty Mauk was indefinitely suspended on Monday.
