Report: Former Penn State QB Rob Bolden is headed to LSU

A source told Jim Kleinpeter of the New Orleans Times-Picayune that former Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden has told LSU coaches that he will be transferring to Baton Rouge, and that he is expected to join the rest of the team on Wednesday for the first day of fall practice.

The Tigers gained a roster spot when juco QB recruit Jeremy Liggins was unable to gain eligibility, leaving him to play a second season of juco ball.

LSU already has three QBs on the roster: expected starter Zach Mettenberger, a transfer himself, from Georgia and junior college; and redshirt freshmen Stephen Rivers (brother of Philip) and Jerrard Randall.

Bolden played in 20 games over two seasons for the Nittany Lions, throwing for 2,045 yards.

Kleinpeter writes:

Bolden's presence would provide a hedge against an injury to Mettenberger on a team that is one of the favorites to get to the BCS championship game in Miami. The Tigers have a strong defense, offensive line and running game, and they could likely limp along without stellar quarterback play. Bolden would have the advantage of at least having played in big-time college settings in front of large crowds.
