Patrick Skov tweets he’s transferring from Stanford to Georgia Tech


Earlier this month, Stanford was on the receiving end of the football program’s first-ever graduate transfer.  A week later, the Cardinal has lost another member of its roster to the same maneuver.

On his personal Twitter account very late Tuesday morning, Patrick Skov announced that he will be transferring out of David Shaw‘s program.  Not only that, the fullback revealed his destination: Georgia Tech.

Because he will be a graduate transfer — he’ll receive his degree in International Relations this June — he’ll be eligible to play for the Yellow Jackets in 2015, provided, of course, he enters a grad program not offered at his old school.

Skov has played in 39 games the past three seasons.  While he’s carried the ball just 12 times in his career, he’s scored four touchdowns.  All of those came during a 2014 season that ended with him being named to the Pac-12 All-Academic first team for the second consecutive year.

Skov is the third Cardinal to take the graduate transfer route this offseason, joining Wayne Lyons, who moved on to Michigan, and Kevin Reihner, who is now at Penn State.
