Ryan Finley transfers to North Carolina State

After a tumultuous ride at Boise State that resulted in a season-ending ankle injury in 2015, Ryan Finley decided to transfer a little over a month ago. He has now found his new home with the North Carolina State Wolfpack.

Rising sophomore quarterback Brett Rypien seemed like the favorite to win the starting job for the Broncos, so Finley announced his intentions to transfer on April 12.

KTVB in Boise confirmed on Monday that the redshirt junior had enrolled at N.C. State.

FInley graduated from Boise State just over a week ago, so he will be eligible to play for the Wolfpack in 2016. That adds some much-needed depth after losing dual-threat quarterback Jacoby Brissett to graduation and the NFL Draft earlier this year.

Ryan Finley started the first three games of the 2015 season and threw for 485 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions before suffering a season-ending ankle injury against Idaho State. He was then replaced by Rypien, who threw for over 3,300 yards and led the team to a dominant win in the Poinsettia Bowl.

Finley should immediately find some familiarity in Raleigh, with former Boise State offensive coordinator Eliah Drinkwitz now holding the same position at N.C. State.
