COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri reserve quarterback Ashton Glaser is leaving the Tigers for a shot at the starting job at Missouri State.

The redshirt junior from Springdale, Ark., announced the move on his Twitter account Monday. He was listed as Missouri's third-string quarterback after spring practices and played in just one game in Columbia.

Missouri still has three quarterbacks on scholarship: starter James Franklin, redshirt freshman Corbin Berkstresser and freshman Maty Mauk.

Missouri State has just two scholarship quarterbacks after its incumbent starter was kicked off the team in May for rules violations. Glaser will be able to immediately play for the Bears, a member of the Football Championship Subdivision.
