Penn State QB Rob Bolden Granted Release From Scholarship, Visits LSU

Rob Bolden is no longer under scholarship to play football for Penn State, according to reports, and has already begun the process of choosing his next destination by reportedly taking an official visit to LSU. StateCollege.com's Rob Musselman tweeted the news on Bolden's status with Penn State:

Bolden was by no means an important piece of the puzzle at Penn State: The former starter was No. 3 on the depth chart after a sophomore season that saw him complete less than 40 percent of his passes and toss two touchdowns to seven picks, and Matt McGloin is the presumptive starter. However, Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson graduated last season for LSU, leaving first-year starter Zach Mettenberger the likely option at quarterback with only redshirt freshmen behind him. Bolden might not be the answer at quarterback for the Tigers, but if he were to choose LSU, he would provide valuable depth immediately for a team that won't need to score many points to be competitive.
