Former Iowa quarterback and linebacker A.J. Derby has officially transferred to Coffeyville Junior College, according to the Des Moines Register.

Derby is now enrolled at the school, located in Coffeyville, Kan.

The Iowa City native began his college career as a quarterback in the spring of 2010, and he moved to linebacker during this past season. Derby completed 3-of-6 passes for 30 yards in his short Iowa stint and recorded one tackle on special teams.

By transferring to a junior college, Derby can both commit to a Football Bowl Subdivision or Football Championship Series school and play immediately in 2013. The City High product would have two years of eligibility remaining.

Derby had numerous Division-I offers coming out of high school — including ones from Alabama, Florida, and Wisconsin — but chose his hometown college instead.

Coffeyville plays in the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference; it was 6-4 in 2011. The Red Ravens have an immediate opening at quarterback.
