Quarterback John Kolar announced his intentions to transfer from the Oklahoma State football program on Sunday.

In a Twitter statement, Kolar said he was transferring to pursue a master’s degree while playing out his final year of eligibility. A former four-star recruit out of Norman North High School, the redshirt junior appeared in one game during his career, a 2016 contest against Southeastern Louisiana. He completed 1-of-2 passes for eight yards and rushed twice for 18 yards.

Kolar participated in OSU’s Senior Day festivities last Saturday against West Virginia. His brother, Charlie, is a tight end at Iowa State.

Kolar is the fourth Oklahoma State player to announce he would transfer. Jalen McCleskey, Thabo Mwaniki and J.D. King, all scholarship players, have decided to transfer during the course of the season.

OSU currently has one quarterback commit for its 2019 class. Brendan Costello, a dual-threat signal caller from San Clemente, California, is a three-star prospect, per 247Sports. On the roster, OSU has freshman Spencer Sanders, graduate transfer Dru Brown, redshirt sophomore Keondre Wudtee and walk-on Shaun Taylor from Fort Worth, Texas. All four are eligible to redshirt this season.
