According to a report published in the Orlando Sentinel on Wednesday, Boise State Broncos quarterback Nick Patti has been granted a release from his scholarship, allowing him to now transfer to another school.
Patti’s father confirmed the situation but did not provide any information as to the programs his son is considering,
The 5-foot-10, 200-pound Patti was a phenomenal player at Orlando’s Dr. Phillips High School, setting records for passing yards (5,701), pass completions (374), and touchdown passes (66). He arrived at Boise State expecting to compete for the starting job, but he wound up redshirting in 2012. He saw limited action this past season after fellow quarterback Joe Southwick was injured, completing eight passes for 63 yards. He also had four carries for a total of 19 yards.
Patti’s impending departure puts the Broncos in a bind with regards to next year’s quarterback situation. With Southwick graduating, Boise State will only have two quarterbacks — senior Grant Hedrick and freshman Ryan Finley– on scholarship.
