UCF QB Mack enters transfer portal
UCF reserve quarterback Darriel Mack Jr. announced Wednesday his decision to enter the transfer portal.
“These past three years of my life have been nothing short of the best moments in my life. I have built life long relationship [sic] with my teammates and coaches,” Mack wrote on Twitter. “I want to thank the amazing UCF fan base for supporting me from the time that I put on my helmet here at UCF.
“I also want to thank the coaches that recruited me and taught me intangible life-long lessons that I will never forget. Lastly, I want to thank my brothers, on and off the field. You guys provided a sort of safe haven for me in my darkest times and we all developed a bond that could never be broken.”
Mack, a redshirt junior, will be a graduate transfer with two years remaining of eligibility. He will be able to take the field at the start of next season.
Mack opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns. His defining moment at UCF came during the 2018 campaign, when he replaced an injured McKenzie Milton and led the Knights to a 56-41 victory over Memphis in the American Athletic Conference championship game to cap an undefeated regular season. UCF went on to lose the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl to LSU, 40-32, with Mack under center.
Mack ends his UCF career with 70 completions for 838 yards and seven touchdowns over 17 games. He was intercepted twice, but he also rushed for nine touchdowns and 516 yards.
