Will Indianos, the former Oak Hall quarterback who is the state of Florida's prep career passing touchdown leader, is leaving Wartburg College.

After one season at the Division-III school in Waverly, Iowa, in which he played on the junior varsity team, Indianos is transferring to Vanderbilt University. He plans to walk on the Commodores football team.

"It is definitely going to be the most challenging thing I have ever had to do, but I am going to give it my all," said Indianos, who was accepted to Vanderbilt about a week and a half ago and made his decision official on Wednesday. "I am looking forward to it."

In the final game of his impressive high school career, the 5-foot-9 signal caller threw six touchdown passes in Oak Hall's 61-27 Homecoming win over Monticello Aucilla Christian to move ahead of Florida quarterback John Brantley to become the state's all-time leader in scoring passes (100). In that game, Indianos surpassed former Ponte Vedra Beach Nease and Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, who is now with the Denver Broncos and former Daytona Beach Seabreeze and FSU quarterback Xavier Lee, who had 98, before topping Brantley, who had 99. Indianos finished his four-year prep career with state records in completions and attempts (659-for-1161), while ranking second in career passing yards (9533) behind Tebow (9922).
