Tight end Austin Haywood plans to transfer from No. 11 Oklahoma at the end of the semester.
Coach Bob Stoops announced after practice Monday that Haywood was going to ''quit'' and that ''we're all good with that and wish him the best.''
Haywood played in the Sooners' first six games this season, catching six passes for 42 yards. The sophomore was Oklahoma's top tight end behind seniors James Hanna and Trent Ratterree, leaving the future of the position for next season in question.
Haywood is the team's third offensive player to decide to transfer since the season started.
Co-offensive coordinator Jay Norvell says Haywood ''did some good things as a physical blocker but we've got to move forward with the guys that really want to be a part of what we're doing.''
