He came to leave a legacy at Houston, but now he has decided to simply leave.
After playing just four games during his senior year with the Cougars, dual-threat quarterback D’Eriq King announced he is entering the transfer portal, officially ending his time with the program.
The move, however, is not a shock after redshirting his senior season in September after passing for 663 yards and six touchdowns.
A product of Manvel, the dual-threat threw for more than 10,000 yards during his career, while rushing for another 3,000, landing him a spot among the state’s elite recruits.
At Houston, King completed 62 percent of his passes (369 of 597) for 4,925 yards with 50 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 35 games played. Additionally, he ran for 1,421 yards and 28 touchdowns on 253 carries and caught 59 passes for 504 yards and three touchdowns in his career.
