Hawaii quarterback Jeremy Moussa was sacked by Fresno State defensive end Mykal Walker during the second half of a game in Fresno, Calif., Oct. 27. Fresno State won 50-20.

Quarterback Jeremy Moussa has decided to leave the University of Hawaii football team and transfer to a junior college, UH head coach Nick Rolovich confirmed to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser today.

Moussa joined the Rainbow Warriors as an early-admission freshman in January 2018. He was viewed as having the strongest arm among the UH quarterbacks. Moussa played in two games in 2018, completing four of nine passes for 77 yards and a touchdown. His play was restricted to enable him to count 2018 as a redshirt year and still have four seasons of eligibility remaining.

But with Cole McDonald, who will be a fourth-year junior this year, and Chevan Cordeiro, who will be a second-year freshman, atop the depth chart, Moussa opted to depart.

“I think he’s got the ability to be a great quarterback,” Rolovich said of Moussa. “I appreciate his maturity, and how he handled the situation. We wish him nothing but the best. He gave us everything he had while he was here, and we hate to see him go. I understand the situation.”

In December, the Warriors signed quarterback Zach Daniel of The Kinkaid School in Houston.
