Former Texas A&M defensive end Gavin Stansbury plans to transfer to Houston and will be eligible to play immediately, a person with knowledge of Stansbury’s plans said.

Stansbury was dismissed from Texas A&M on July 21 by coach Kevin Sumlin for “personal issues.”

In April, Stansbury was arrested and charged in Harris County with misdemeanor assault after a Rice University student accused him of pouring beer on the student’s head and punching him in the face.
