A former Texas A&M starting quarterback announced his plans to transfer from the Aggies football program. Former three-star quarterback recruit Nick Starkel took to Twitter on Tuesday night to announce his intentions to leave Texas A&M with two years of eligibility left.

Starkel opened the 2017 season as the Aggies starting quarterback before he was replaced by Kellen Mond for six games before ending the season as the starter due to injury over the final five weeks of the season.

He saw limited action in 2018 as Mond held down the starting role for the entire campaign and shined in his second year under center.

"Since I signed my letter of intent I have given my all to my teammates, coaches, and the 12th man - from starting my first college football game under Coach Sumlin and his staff, to winning the Gator Bowl with Coach Fisher and his...I will explore finishing my final two years of eligibility at another program," Starkel said in a statement.

Starkel announced he will graduate from Texas A&M this spring and become a graduate transfer heading into the 2019 season. As a grad transfer, he'll be immediately eligible to take the field for his new program when the 2019 campaign kicks off.

Stay tuned for his transfer announcement.
