Dave Matter from the Columbia Daily-Tribune has the word this morning that the Missouri Tigers are going to lose a quarterback as they transition from the Big 12 to the SEC with word that Ashton Glaser is going to attend Missouri State instead of waiting his turn with the Tigers. Perhaps that says as much as the legal troubles Glaser had recently gotten into as well as the talent around him that might have never given him a chance to start.
Still more to come, but #Mizzou QB Ashton Glaser plans to transfer to Missouri State— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) July 9, 2012
Glaser recently had the horrible day in which he was punched in the face by a man when knocking on a female neighbor's door. When the police came, they arrested Glaser for outstanding speeding tickets.
Glaser is a redshirt junior who has been sitting behind James Franklin, the incumbent starter, at No. 3 on the depth chart also behind Corbin Berkstresser. It's odd that Glaser might transfer since there's a chance he could break through given Berkstresser was also arrested after a recent hit-and-run incident and Franklin being out. However, Glaser apparently needed a fresh start.
