Former Penn State quarterback Tyler Ferguson transferring to Louisville

Last month Penn State quarterback Tyler Ferguson was granted permission to transfer. The junior-to-be announced his destination Friday, telling ESPN.com that he plans on starting classes at the University of Louisville on Monday.

As per NCAA transfer rules, Ferguson won’t be able to play during the 2014 season.

The 6-foot-3, 213-pound quarterback also revealed that his original plan was to transfer to Western Kentucky. The plan changed, though, when the Louisville Cardinals hired Bobby Petrino away from Western Kentucky in order to replace the recently departed Charlie Strong.

Ferguson said:

After he got the job at Louisville, he called me very shortly after that. So, yeah, I’m going out there to Louisville now.

 

[Petrino] was the first to reach out to me when I got my release from Penn State. He said if he got the Louisville job, he still wanted to get me.

Ferguson played in five games for the Nittany Lions this past season. He completed 10 of his 15 passing attempting for 155 yards and a touchdown.
