DeKALB — Five players from the football team have announced their intention to transfer over the summer from NIU.
Redshirt first-year quarterback Jiya Wright announced his transfer Wednesday on Twitter, saying he intends to continue his career as a quarterback after spending the end of spring camp working as a defensive back.
“I’d like to thank all my coaches, training staff and everyone here in DeKalb for the great memories,” Wright said in a statement. “That being said I am transferring from NIU to follow my passion of playing [quarterback].”
Sophomore wide receiver Fotis Kokosioulis had previously announced Monday on Twitter he has entered the transfer portal.
