Nearly six months after making the decision to transfer from Penn State, Kevin Newsome has decided on a new football home.
Citing unnamed sources, the Philadelphia Daily News is reporting that the quarterback will be transferring to Temple. Newsome’s addition is expected to be announced when the Owls release its list of 2012 signees Wednesday.
As Newsome did not play in 2011, he will be eligible to play immediately. He will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2012.
Newsome was a touted four-star member of the Nittany Lions’ 2009 recruiting class, rated as the No. 4 dual-threat QB in the country. During his two years in Happy Valley, he played in 15 games and attempted just 24 passes as he fell behind Rob Bolden and then Matt McGloin in PSU’s QB pecking order.
