Former Oklahoma State quarterback Daxx Garman will transfer to Maryland and be eligible to play this coming season as a graduate transfer, the school announced on Thursday.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Garman played in nine games for the Cowboys last season, starting eight of them, and completed 54.9 percent of his passes for 2,041 yards and 12 touchdowns with 12 interceptions.

“We are excited that Daxx will be joining our program,” Maryland coach Randy Edsall said in a statement released by the school. “He is an experienced quarterback who has proven himself as an accomplished starter in the Big 12, helping to lead his team to a postseason bowl game.

Daxx is an outstanding student who has displayed tremendous poise and maturity during his college career. He comes in knowing he is competing for the starting quarterback position and is looking forward to the competition and being part of our football family.”

Garman began his career at Arizona, redshirting in 2011 before transferring to Oklahoma State. He did not play in 2012, sitting out a transfer year, or in 2013, when J.W. Walsh and two others started at least three games. Garman replaced Walsh because of injury in the second game, but was benched after a Nov. 15 loss to Texas in favor of Mason Rudolph, a true freshman.

He will compete with senior Caleb Rowe and junior Perry Hills, each of whom saw action last year as backups to C.J. Brown, as well as sophomore Shane Cockerille for the starting role.

“Coach Edsall has done a great job with the football program and he truly cares about his players,” Garman said in that statement. “I’m very excited to compete in the Big Ten Conference. Maryland is an outstanding university and I’m excited to further my education and continue playing football. I enjoyed my visit in College Park and I’m excited to have this opportunity.
