Kansas Jayhawks News: Chad Kolumber Transferring To Richmond

The Kansas Jayhawks are losing a member of their football team, as offensive lineman Chad Kolumber has decided to leave the Kansas program and transfer to the University of Richmond.

As the Spiders are a Div. 1-AA (FCS) program, Kolumber, who played in five games as a redshirt freshman last season, will be eligible to play immediately.

As noted by the Journal-World, Kolumber becomes the 23rd player with eligibility still remaining who has left the program since Charlie Weis took over for Turner Gill. The Jayhawks have also added at least five players who have transferred into the program, three of whom will be eligible to play immediately.

Hopefully for Kolumber's sake, he finds what he's looking for at Richmond, where as noted, he is eligible to play immediately.

As far as Kansas is concerned, it's certainly disappointing to see a player leave, but it's not surprising, given that Kolumber committed to Kansas with Gill, not Weis, at the helm.
