Quarterback Shane Dillon Transferring from Colorado

QB depth in Boulder takes a hit.

Rumors have been swirling about a possible quarterback transfer from Colorado for a couple of days, but the University has just gone public with Shane Dillon's desire to leave the Buffaloes program.

According CUBuffs.com Dillon is leaving Boulder to continue a career on the basketball court, something he would have been unable to do at Colorado.

Dillon did speak with basketball coach Tad Boyle about the possibility of joining the CU men's team, but all scholarships in 2013-14 are spoken for so he would have had to be a walk-on and then try to earn a scholarship a year from now. "That's something my family really can't afford right now, or I would definitely have considered that option."

The highly touted recruit was limited in practice for most of his freshman season while overcoming shoulder surgery. In four scrimmages this spring, he completed 19-of-39 passes for 185 yards and two touchdowns (one interception), and rushed for 26 yards on 10 attempts.

Dillon's departure leaves a little bit less depth behind presumed starter Connor Wood. Jordan Webb (but probably not), Jordan Gerhke, John Schrock, Stevie Joe Dorman and Sefo Liufau remain at the position.

Good luck to Shane in whatever his next step may be.
