Rams quarterback pondering transfer

March 12, 2007

Albany - The Albany State Rams resuming spring practice after taking a week off for spring break at the University last week.

Head coach Mike White was greeted with some unexpected news on Monday afternoon.

Quarterback Terrance Ransom told his head coach before today's practice that he is considering transferring.

Ransom then went home while the team held its first practice of the spring in pads.

Terrance Ransom was to be the Rams starting quarterback of the future when he signed his scholarship at Monroe High two years ago.

After seeing very limited playing time behind Hosea Harris his freshman season, Ransom shared the starting job with Illinois transfer Kisan Flakes last year.

Head coach Mike White says he is going to give his quarterback the chance to sleep on the matter tonight before coach and player meet again Tuesday.

Mike White said " He's just upset. We'll talk tomorrow, and see where he's at, but he's just upset. He just feels like he's not progressing along like he should."

Terrance Ransom started six games at quarterback for the Rams as a sophomore last year.

The Albany State football team will practice Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday for the next three weeks.

The Rams will wrap up spring practice on March 31st.

Albany State will open the 2007 season August 25th at home against North Carolina Central.
