It has become very hard to keep a talented quarterback on the bench in college football. The latest major conference signal caller to announce his intention to transfer is Syracuse’s Chance Amie.
Amie, a dual-threat QB out of Texas, was a late addition to the 2018 Orange recruiting class. He did not appear in a game for Syracuse this fall.
Dino Babers’ staff beat out nearby Houston for the three-star player.
247Sports ranked Amie as the No. 900 player in the country. He was the No. 26 dual-threat quarterback in the class.
Earlier in the day, Syracuse blog Otto’s Grove reported that Amie was in the NCAA Transfer Portal.
While the portal allows players to consider a move, it looks like Amie will definitely be heading elsewhere.
Chance Amie announced his transfer from Syracuse moments ago.
I would like to thank Syracuse for everything they have done for me. I appreciate all of the coaches, staff, and players but I will be transferring from the University this next semester. No interviews. 💙

With Eric Dungey’s graduation, this leaves Syracuse in a weird spot at the quarterback position.
Former four-star recruit Tommy Devito, who played a key role in a few wins during Syracuse’s 10-3 2018 campaign, is the heir apparent for the job. He has three years of eligibility remaining.
The Orange do not have a 2019 quarterback commit, and the only other scholarship quarterback on the roster, Rex Culpepper, switched positions to tight end during the season.
