Jack Abraham is looking for a new school.

Abraham, the former Oxford High quarterback, is leaving Louisiana Tech after one season. He announced his intention to transfer in a post to his Twitter account.

He redshirted this past season and will have four years to play four seasons at his next school. Abraham’s post didn’t indicate which schools he may be considering.

“After a lot of thought and prayer, I have decided to transfer from Louisiana Tech to continue my education and play football,” part of Abraham’s post read. “I want to thank (Louisiana Tech) coach (Skip) Holtz, (quarterbacks) coach (Tim) Rattay and the rest of the coaching staff for everything they have done for me.”

Abraham, a two-time EAGLE Player of the Year during his high school career, started three seasons at Oxford, helping lead the Chargers to three straight MHSAA Class 5A title games from 2013-15. He was named Mississippi’s Gatorade Player of the Year after setting single-season school records with 5,091 passing yards and 57 touchdowns passes as a senior.

Abraham originally committed to Tulane before a coaching change made him re-evaluate his options. He signed with Louisiana Tech over South Alabama and California among others and went through the Bulldogs’ spring practice in 2016 as an early enrollee.

One of a handful of quarterbacks that played, Abraham threw a 19-yard touchdown pass in Louisiana Tech’s spring game on April 8.
