OU Football: Hansen To Transfer From School

Posted: Updated:
NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma redshirt freshman quarterback Justice Hansen is transferring from the school.

Hansen announced his decision by releasing a statement on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.

“I have done a lot of thinking, talking with friends and family, and most importantly, praying. In the end I feel it is in my best interest to move on from the University of Oklahoma and continue my football career elsewhere. I can't think Coach Stoops, Coach Riley, and all the other coaches enough for how they have treated me during my time at OU. I would also like to thank my teammates for pushing me and allowing me to be part of the family. The university was a great experience and I appreciate the opportunity I had to proudly represent it. I wish nothing but the best for OU in the future. God Bless.”

The Edmond Santa Fe product never played a game for the Sooners and redshirted this past season. He participated in the spring game in April, going 5-of-5 for 70 yards and an interception. With Hansen transferring, the Oklahoma quarterback derby loses a contestant. Baker Mayfield, Trevor Knight and Cody Thomas remain and there is much speculation that Mayfield will be the starting quarterback when the season begins.

However, OU coach Bob Stoops said after spring practice a decision will not be made until closer to the first game of the year. The Sooners open the season on Sept. 5 in Norman against Akron.
