SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah quarterback Corbin Louks announced Tuesday that he plans to transfer to Nevada. Louks had been dividing his time between quarterback and safety since last Friday.
Following last Thursday's scrimmage, the Utes had selected Jordan Wynn to be at the top of the depth chart, followed by Terrance Cain and Louks at third.
Whittingham addressed the media following Tuesday's practice. "We appreciate the contributions that Corbin has made to our program," Whittingham said. "The role he played for us the last two seasons was definitely a factor in our success. We wish him nothing but the best in all his future endeavors."
Corbin felt like transferring would be the best thing for the team, not just himself. "I plan to transfer and I feel it is best for the team that I don't drag things out," Louks told KSL. "The team needs to concentrate on the game with Utah State and I don't want to be a distraction. Transferring will give me the opportunity to play a position I know and love. I've really enjoyed my two years here at Utah and have made some lifelong friends. I want to thank the coaches, players and fans for all their support.
Other quarterbacks Jordan Wynn and Terrance Cain are currently 1 and 1-A on the depth chart after Cain worked himself back into contention with a great showing at Saturday's practice.
Utah finishes up fall camp this week with a scrimmage on Saturday. Their first game is Thursday, September 3, against Utah State.
