COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M back-up quarterback Nick Starkel announced on Twitter Tuesday night that he'll graduate from A&M in June and then leave the school for an opportunity to play elsewhere.

The redshirt sophomore will have two years of eligibility left.

Starkel started as a true freshman before injuring his ankle. Kellen Mond beat out Starkel in a QB battle last fall.
