Utah State Quarterback Henry Columbi Transfers to Texas Tech

Add another to the quarterback room.

Utah State quarterback Henry Columbi has decided to transfer to Texas Tech. Columbi was originally a 3-star signal caller from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with offers from Akron, Arkansas, FIU, and Iowa State. As a sophomore last year, Columbi didn’t get a ton of snaps behind Jordan Love, but ended up being 20 of 29 for 221 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception for the year. Columbi will have to sit out a year or apply for a waiver to be eligible.

You can check out Columbi’s highlights as a high school senior and at Utah State, they’re both right here.

Red Raider Sports’ Ben Golan spoke with Columbi about choosing Texas Tech:

Why Texas Tech: “Another big thing for me was going to a place that I’ve ran the offense at before. I ran this offense for the past few years, I know the offense so I don’t have to go in and learn an entire new playbook. Then again, just the relationship with the coaches and it’s also a little bit closer to home. That’s another big thing for me and it means a lot to me.”

There’s more there, so go check it out.

As far as what this means, well, I think this creates more competition in the quarterback room and this is a page out of the Chris Beard book, which is there can never be enough talent and if someone ends up transferring as a result of that, then that’s okay. Never stop trying to acquire talent if it improves your team.
