Arizona State junior quarterback Blake Barnett is transferring to a different program, as confirmed on Wednesday by a source close to the program. Barnett leaves the program with two more seasons of eligibility.

Barnett, the No. 2 ranked quarterback in his 2015 class, originally committed to Notre Dame. He then de-committed and signed with Alabama, but transferred in December of 2016 after losing the starting spot to Jalen Hurts. However, Barnett found himself once again competing for the starting spot, this time with junior Manny Wilkins.

Heading into the 2018 season, Barnett found himself starting over behind an entirely new offensive coaching staff, as he originally committed under head coach Todd Graham and offensive coordinator Chip Lindsay, and still as No. 2 behind Wilkins.

ASU will be left with two other scholarship quarterbacks behind Wilkins: redshirt sophomore Dillon Sterling-Cole and redshirt freshman Ryan Kelley. No quarterback recruits were signed by the program.

“He has done a really good job when he has gone with the ones,” current offensive coordinator Rob Likens said of Barnett. “That is what Blake has done a really good job when he comes in, trying to be the same leader as Manny.”

Barnett has not made a decision about where he will ultimately end up, but according to Fox Sports, has plans to visit University of South Florida this weekend.

Sports have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I played softball for 12 years and fell head over heels in love with the game. I am currently going to school at Arizona State University pursuing degrees in both sports journalism and statistics. Baseball is my main passion, but I can talk some NFL too (Go Hawks!). I am fascinated with the numbers side of the game and love how prevalent it is becoming.
