ESPN: Missouri QB Tyler Gabbert elects to transfer
Missouri quarterback Tyler Gabbert plans to transfer, the school announced on Monday morning.
Gabbert, a redshirt freshman, had been competing with James Franklin throughout the spring, but Missouri's coaches placed Franklin atop the depth chart to end the spring.
The Tigers had indicated that the competition would continue into the fall, but now, it looks like the job is all but Franklin's. Gabbert's departure leaves Ashton Glaser as the likely backup. He had competed with Franklin and Gabbert during the spring, but coaches indicated the competition had boiled down to a two-man race by the end of the fall.
