Mississippi State got its new head football coach last month in the form of Mike Leach and this month, it appears Leach has found his quarterback.
K.J. Costello, a veteran signal caller that had one of the best seasons in Stanford history back in 2018, announced on Monday that he will be a graduate transfer at MSU in 2020. Costello has just one year of eligibility remaining.
Costello announced his intentions in a statement he posted to social media outlets addressing what he dubbed the “Stanford family.”
“I remember dreaming about playing at Stanford since I was a little kid,” Costello said. “The legacy and tradition was something I always knew I wanted to be a part of. I feel so fortunate to have spent my last four years at the top institution in the world. I decided to attend Stanford because I felt it would drive me to become the best version of myself. It did just that."
