All-American kicker Noel Ruiz is transferring to Georgia State for his final year of eligibility.

The North Carolina A&T standout announced the move this week on Twitter. As a graduate transfer, he is eligible to play for the Panthers in 2020.

Ruiz said he was leaving North Carolina A&T after three “unforgettable years” because the school does not offer the masters program he wants to pursue.

Ruiz earned American Football Coaches Association All-American honors at the Football Championship Subdivision school in 2019. He made 23 of 27 field goals and 47 of 52 extra points. He led the FCS with 1.92 made field goals per game and smashed the previous school season record of 15.

For his career, Ruiz made 37 of 51 field goals and 139 of 155 PATs.
