Former Penn State and LSU quarterback Rob Bolden will transfer to Eastern Michigan in hopes of receiving more playing time.
Quarterback Rob Bolden is making the second transfer of his college career to Eastern Michigan, and he will leave LSU after being buried on the quarterback depth chart.
Bolden was looking to be the backup to Zach Mettenberger, but Anthony Jennings beat him out for the No. 2 job, and Stephen Rivers also jumped him.
Mettenberger has left for the NFL, and Jennings is set to become the starter after showing flashes of potential. Jennings had led LSU to a comeback victory over Arkansas while filling in for the injured Mettenberger.
Bolden will enroll at Eastern Michigan in hopes of receiving more playing time, and he has limited starting experience under his belt from playing at Penn State.
The newly arrived Eagle was named the starting quarterback for the Nittany Lions as a true freshman, but he was eventually replaced by Matt McGloin and transferred after sanctions hit Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.
The former Nittany Lion and Tiger expressed his gratitude with his newly arrived opportunity. “I am happy to be home with a new start and look to make my final year special,” Bolden said in an Eastern Michigan press release.
