Ryan Burns will remain at Stanford for his final season of eligibility, David Lombardi of ESPN.com reports.
It was announced in early January that Burns was mulling a transfer to another program, but he'll remain in Palo Alto for one more season. Burns will have an opportunity to gain an inside track on the starting job this spring and fall while 2016 starter Keller Chryst recovers from offseason knee surgery. Burns appeared in 11 games in 2016, completing 61.1 percent of his passes for 1,151 yards with five touchdowns and seven interceptions.
Ryan Burns is expected to transfer to another school as a graduate student, Jon Wilner of the Bay Area News Group reports.
As Wilner notes, Burns' impending transfer is made doubly impactful by the fact that 2016 starter Keller Chryst is expected to miss upwards of six months while recovering from knee surgery. Burns, a northern Virginia native, is a former highly touted recruit who struggled in his first season of significant action in 2016, completing 61.1 percent of his passes with a 6.9 YPA to go with five touchdowns and seven interceptions. There is no indication yet as to where Burns intends to transfer.
