The Mississippi State portion of Keytaon Thompson’s collegiate football career has come to an end as another chapter begins.

On Friday, the redshirt junior quarterback announced his plans to transfer to Virginia with two years of eligibility remaining.

Thompson was wildly successful when he found the field with the Bulldogs, taking down Lamar Jackson and Louisville in the 2017 Tax Slayer Bowl, filling in for an injured Nick Fitzgerald.

His only other start was a dazzling five touchdown, no interception performance against Stephen F. Austin, leaving the remainder of his time in Starkville as turbulent following the arrival of Penn State transfer Tommy Stevens in 2019.
