It's Wednesday so of course, another Rice player is seeking a grad transfer. V.J. Banks sought and received his release from the University. Banks started 22 games for the Owls including two in 2017 after his season was cut short by injury.
The senior from Bryan picked off two passes in his Rice career. Banks also returned punts for Rice during his career. No news on a landing spot, but he joins Calvin Anderson, Preston Gordon, and J.T. Ibe in seeking a grad transfer from Rice this offseason.
