BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Quarterback Connor Wood has enrolled at the University of Colorado after transferring from Texas.
The 6-foot-4, 220-pound redshirt freshman will practice with the Buffaloes this fall but must sit out this season. He'll be eligible in 2012, after starter Tyler Hansen has graduated.
Coach Jon Embree said Wood is a walk-on who will help run the scout team for now.
Wood left Texas' fall camp after finding himself tied for third on the depth chart with freshman David Ash and behind junior Garrett Gilbert and sophomore Case McCoy.
Wood was highly recruited out of Second Baptist High School in Houston, where he was a three-time all-state selection and threw for 8,417 yards and 73 touchdowns and ran for 1,482 yards and 37 TDs in four years as a starter.
