Two other Gophers tranfers to report: wide receiver Conner Krizancic to Ohio and defensive tackle Demaris Peppers to Jackson State. It's that time of year, and these are expected to be the last ones before spring semester starts next week.

Krizancic announced today on Twitter that he is transferring "to fulfill my dream of being a Division 1 quarterback at Ohio University."

Krizancic was a consensus three-star recruit coming out of Mentor (Ohio) High School. He moved from wide receiver to quarterback as a high school senior but was recruited as a receiver. He redshirted last fall after suffering a hamstring injury before training camp.

Without Krizancic, the Gophers still have three wide receiver recruits from the 2014 class that they really like: Isaiah Gentry, Desmond Gant, Melvin Holland Jr. Jerry Gibson, another receiver, is a dynamic athlete who could switch to tight end.

Ohio, from the Mid-American Conference, went 6-6 this year. The Bobcats will play the Gophers at TCF Bank Stadium on Sept. 26, but Krizancic will have to sit out a year under NCAA transfer rules.

Peppers, a consensus three-star recruit from the 2013 class, is transferring to Jackson State after redshirting in 2013 and playing in just one game last season. Jackson State is an FCS (former Division-IAA) school in Mississippi.
