OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - Senior quarterback Gavin Wimsatt has played his last football game with Owensboro High School.

Officials with the school’s athletic department say Wimsatt is leaving to play for the Rutgers football program.

In April, Wimsatt committed to Rutgers, but this announcement means he’s departing from the high school ranks early to suit up for the Scarlett Knights.

Wimsatt helped lead Owensboro to the Class 5A state championship game last year.

On Sunday, the soon-to-be college quarterback released a video message on his Twitter account.
