Texas A&M running back Rakeem Boyd has transferred and signed with a junior college program, Gigem247 reported Wednesday.

Boyd will play next season at Independence (Kan.) Community College.

Boyd, a redshirt freshman, reportedly leaves Texas A&M because of academic issues. His enrollment last fall was delayed as he waited to be cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse; this semester, he didn’t meet his hour requirements after dropping too many classes.

Multiple recent retweets on Boyd’s Twitter account appeared to confirm that he is leaving Texas A&M.

Boyd, who has four years of eligibility remaining, possibly could rejoin the Aggies after next season.

Boyd, a former three-star recruit from Houston (Texas) Stratford, also had offers from Colorado, Arizona State, Arkansas, Boston College, Duke, Houston, Kansas State, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Oregon State, Utah and West Virginia, among others, in the 2016 recruiting cycle.

Boyd joins defensive tackle Reggie Chevis and linebacker Richard Moore as Texas A&M players to transfer this offseason.

Last month, former Oklahoma offensive tackle Christian Daimler announced he would be joining the Aggies as a graduate transfer this season.

At running back, Texas A&M still returns redshirt senior Keith Ford and sophomore Trayveon Williams for 2017.
