Former Penn State and Louisville quarterback Tyler Ferguson is transferring yet again. This time, Ferguson will be headed to Western Kentucky, according to The Bowling Green Daily News.
Ferguson did not play at all last year and should be able to play for the Hilltoppers immediately.
A former three-star recruit out of California’s College of Sequoias in the JUCO rankings, Ferguson headed to Penn State in 2013 and was in contention for the starting quarterback’s job.
However, once five-star prospect Christian Hackenberg arrived on campus, Ferguson’s chances went out the window. He appeared in four games and completed 10 of 15 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown, but still opted to transfer.
Those are the only numbers of his FBS career.
But Ferguson is headed to an ideal situation at WKU, as longtime quarterback Brandon Doughty is set to graduate. He has a much better chance of winning the starting job in Bowling Green, as his only real competition is USF transfer Mike White.
Playing under a coach, Jeff Brohm, whom helped Doughty set records, Ferguson could easily take the next step forward in his football career.
WKU hosts Southern Miss in the Conference USA Championship Game in Bowling Green tomorrow. Kickoff is slated for 12 p.m. ET on ESPN2
