Oregon State Beavers quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei has announced his intention to transfer. This comes after one season with his current school.

And his announcement comes just days after his former head coach took a new job. Jonathan Smith accepted the Michigan State Spartans head coaching position.

He began his career with the Clemson Tigers. As a starter, Uiagalelei is 30-10.

Nebraska head coach Matt Rhule said that a quarterback in the transfer portal is worth $1-2 million.

While he may transfer to a new school, Uiagalelei may also throw his name in the upcoming NFL Draft. Reports suggest that he will take time to decide what his future will be.

If he does not play in the team’s upcoming Bowl game, his final game will come in the “Civil War” with the Beavers in a loss to their in-state rivals, the Oregon Ducks. He went 19 of 35 for 220 yards.

Uiagalelei also had one touchdown pass and one interception in the game.

The 22-year-old has gone 180 of 315 for 2,638 yards. He also had 21 touchdown passes and seven interceptions.

Including his stop in Clemson, South Carolina, Uiagalelei has gone 695 of 1,175 for 8,319 yards. He also has 57 touchdown passes and 24 interceptions.

Statistically, his one season with the Beavers was his best in terms of passing yards. He had the aforementioned 2,638 yards.

This season, his 21 touchdown passes were just one shy of his collegiate high 22 that he had last season with the Tigers.
