Jake Rubley plays quarterback for Highlands Ranch High School in Colorado; he is the 19th-ranked quarterback in the class of 2020 by 247 and is a Kansas State commit. The state of Colorado has not yet said either way whether there will be football season this Fall, and Rubley told the Denver Post that he might consider transferring to Valley High School in Des Moines, Iowa for his senior season.
“You work your whole life to play football,” Rubley said in a story published Monday. “And your senior season should be the most fun season you play.”
On Tuesday, 247 upped the ante, reporting that Rubley “intends” to transfer to Valley, in a move at least partially propelled by the fact that their star running back Jayden Williams is a fellow Kansas State recruit. Williams told 247 that Rubley attended the Iowa high school team’s last two days of camp plus a team bonfire, and that they’ve been talking on Snapchat about this possibility since June.
This is a pretty wild story, but I also wonder if it’s something we might see more of in the coming weeks?
UPDATE: A friend wrote in that this wouldn’t be the first time this has happened in 2020. J.J. McCarthy, a Michigan QB commit, decided in May to transfer from a school in Illinois to IMG Academy in Florida.
