Breaking news from Joseph Duarte of the Chronicle:
King is the best player on Dana Holgerson’s offense and one of the most dynamic players in the nation. He just broke the NCAA record for consecutive games with a passing and rushing TD at 15 in the loss to Tulane.
North Texas was going to have a big challenge ahead of them but this makes things much easier.
There are developments. Apparently we will figure out if he is really leaving later this afternoon.
While his father says he's leaving @UHCougarFB, QB D'Eriq King says his decision is not final: "I've got to go talk to Coach Holgorsen. It's not just me redshirting. It's a bunch of other guys as well." (Asked when he'll make a final decision) "Today, after 5. It's not final." pic.twitter.com/Z6rrcpJE67— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) September 23, 2019
Finally, it is official. He is out for the year. So is WR Corbin.
In D'Eriq King's statement, he says "I came here to play football for the University of Houston and that is not changing." But this also gives him the flexibility of bolting if a situation arises where an underclassman QB leaves early for the NFL. https://t.co/FluyKn98z0— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) September 23, 2019
