Texas Longhorns quarterback Connor Wood, who showed up tied for No. 3 on the team's 2011 depth chart, will reportedly transfer to the Colorado Buffaloes, according to Texas site Hookem.com, which cites his father.
Colorado fans already foresee Wood competing for the starting job in 2012, while Texas fans have been prepared for weeks for him to transfer. The Horns have settled on Garrett Gilbert as their current starting quarterback, and it looks like freshman David Ash is essentially the team's third quarterback anyway.
Wood was a three-time all-state selection out of high school in Houston and a star recruit in 2010, but pretty much everybody Texas brings on is all-Texas-something or other and a star recruit. He's already spent his redshirt year and will be able to join the Buffaloes on the field next year.
