Louks said Tuesday that transferring will give him a better opportunity to continue playing quarterback. He was listed at No. 1 on the depth chart entering fall camp, but was passed last week by freshman Jordan Wynn and junior college transfer Terrance Cain.
Louks was the only quarterback on Utah's roster to play in an NCAA game. He completed nine of 15 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns in his career as a Ute.
Louks will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out this year.
