SEATTLE, WA -- Washington has announced quarterback Nick Montana, son of Hall of Fame QB Joe Montana, has been released from his scholarship so that he can transfer.
Montana just completed his redshirt freshman season with the Huskies. The school announced the decision on Monday night.
Montana landed at Washington with much fanfare as one of the jewels in coach Steve Sarkisian's second recruiting class. But Montana was beaten out for the starting role by Keith Price last spring and Price threw for a school record 33 touchdowns this season.
Montana made one start when Price was injured at Oregon State. Montana was 11 of 21 for 79 yards and two touchdowns. He saw action in six games and threw three TDs and two interceptions.
KBTX Sports contacted Blinn Head Football Coach Ronny Feldman last week about the possibility of Montana joining the Buccaneers program.
Feldman said he received a phone call from Nick's hall of fame father Joe Montana last Thursday and they talked about the possibility of Nick transferring to Blinn.
Monday evening Feldman said there was nothing new to report on the possibility of Montana transferring to Blinn, but expected to know something Tuesday when the spring semester begins on the Brenham, Texas, campus.
