Boise State has had a pretty muddy situation regarding the quarterback position as of late. It just got even worse as Ryan Finley has announced he will be transferring out from Boise State to continue his collegiate career.
The announcement comes after Saturday’s spring game, where rising sophomore Brett Rypien made a strong case to be the starting quarterback for the 2016 season. His chances of winning the position got even stronger with his decision on Tuesday.
“We wish Ryan the best,” Boise State head coach Bryan Harsin said in a released statement. “He is going to leave Boise State with a degree, and that is what this is all about.”
Ryan Finley made appearances in three games last season, throwing for 485 yards, a touchdown and four interceptions. He was eventually replaced by Rypien, who threw for over 3,300 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Finley will obtain his degree this summer and should be able to play immediately at the FBS level, if he were to stay there. He will have two years of eligibility left going forward.
