Bryant Shirreffs transferring from NC State

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

UPDATE: The Athens Banner-Herald confirmed that Shirreffs is transferring and got a comment from his dad:

"At this point, it is what it is and you've got to do what you've got to do to get to the next opportunity," John Shirreffs said. "He's excited. He knows if he wants to get where he wants to be as a quarterback, you have to develop and you have to play to develop."

The Bryant Shirreffs era at NC State is finished, and it barely lasted long enough for all of us to be sure we were spelling his last name correctly. According to 247Sports' Kipp Adams, Shirreffs officially left NC State about a week ago.

Shirreffs was a late addition to State's 2013 class and was quickly shifted away from the quarterback spot after arriving on campus, only to come back to QB after Brandon Mitchell got hurt. His best performance came against Richmond in week two, when he completed all three of his pass attempts for 19 yards and a TD, and ran for 36 yards and a score.

After the staff's early ambivalence about where he best fit, he had been listed at QB this spring (still is, actually), and while he may not have a future as a full-time starter at this level, he could have played a role at quarterback for State in 2014. Especially if, you know, [unspeakable injury scenarios].

Shirreffs is a good student who could have taken offers from Dartmouth or Yale out of high school, so he'll land on his feet. Best of luck to him wherever he ends up.
