TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Quarterback G.J. Kinne, who was fourth on the depth chart at Texas, transferred to Tulsa on Wednesday.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Kinne will have to sit out next season and will be a sophomore when he becomes eligible in 2009.
``We're extremely excited to have a player of G.J.'s caliber. He has been a winner his whole life. For a player of his caliber to transfer to Tulsa speaks volumes about our program and where we're are at this point,'' Tulsa coach Todd Graham said. ``He had a lot of big-time scholarship offers out of high school.''
Kinne, who redshirted last season, was behind starter Colt McCoy and sophomores John Chiles and Sherrod Harris for the Longhorns.
Kinne's father is former Baylor assistant coach Gary Joe Kinne.
