With the 2018 season fully in the books, the transfer train continues to roll along.
Earlier this week, al.com reported that Keith Mixon has decided to transfer from Mississippi State and ply his football wares at an undetermined elsewhere. No specific reason for the transfer was given, although his 2018 playing time being severely curtailed from the level it was at in 2017 would be a likely starting point.
A starter for the first half of the 2017 season, Mixon was hampered in the last half because of a foot injury. He underwent surgery in the offseason to repair the damage, which caused him to fall behind in spring practice and on into summer camp.
After catching 19 passes for 228 yards and a pair of touchdowns as a redshirt freshman in 2016, then going 18-275-1 in 2017, Mixon caught 10 passes for 137 yards and two scores this past season.
As Mixon will be leaving as a graduate transfer, he’d be eligible to play immediately in 2019 at another FBS school.
