With Colorado State set to commence its second spring practice under head coach Jim McElwain, the Rams have seen the quarterback position take a hit in both depth and experience.

At his pre-spring press conference Monday, McElwain confirmed that Conner Smith has decided to leave the football program and transfer to another school. To where the Texas native is headed is unknown at this point.

Barring an unexpected waiver, Smith would be forced to sit out the 2014 season if he ends up at another FBS program. He would then have one season of eligibility remaining in 2015.
