Skip Holtz and the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs enjoyed a successful 2016 season in which the team won nine games. However, things take a hit for 2017 and beyond as of Friday afternoon, with talented quarterback prospect Jack Abraham announcing via Twitter that he will be transferring away from the program immediately.
While Abraham sat out his freshman season with injury, he was one of only two (!) scholarship quarterbacks on the Louisiana Tech roster. Fortunately, the other player that is on scholarship is starting quarterback J’Mar Smith, but the depth chart was already weakened by the transfer of Price Wilson just a few weeks ago.
Holtz and his team do return a strong amount of performers from last year but, if anything happens to Smith, the door is wide open to disaster. In the same breath, it will be very interesting to see where Abraham lands, as he was something of a big-time recruiting win for the Bulldogs after he was the recipient of the USA Today Mississippi Gatorade Player of the Year back in 2015.
Still, the big takeaway here is that Skip Holtz and the Bulldogs will need to be scrounging around on the transfer and recruiting markets for quarterback help in the future.
