Mitch Greibel, who would have been a sophomore for the Falcons this fall, decided to withdraw from the academy when he started to get concerned that he was going to fall too far behind academically, and landed at Montana State with an assist to coach Troy Calhoun.
“Coach Calhoun gave (Montana State coach Rob) Ash a glowing recommendation for Mitch,” said Mike Griebel, Mitch’s father. “That was really cool. I’m glad everything left in good standing.”
Griebel isn’t sure yet if he’ll have three or four years of eligibility, because he played junior varsity games last year and is unsure if that counts against NCAA eligibility. Griebel was set to compete for a backup quarterback job with the Falcons this year.
