Nottingham transferring from Stanford

As part of a three-way competition to replace Andrew Luck at Stanford, Brett Nottingham wound up buried on the quarterback depth chart behind Josh Nunes (the early-season starter) and Kevin Hogan (the presumptive starter heading into 2013).

With that QB clutter ahead of him heading into next year, Nottingham has decided to cut bait.

The Cardinal announced Saturday night that Nottingham has decided to leave the football program ahead of the team’s bowl game.  The Bay-area native turned in his playbook with the intention of transferring to an undetermined destination.

Nottingham was Luck’s primary backup for half the 2011 season as a sophomore — he was the presumptive front-runner heading into spring practice –but played in just two games this season.  For his brief career, Nottingham completed 10-of-16 passes for 100 yards and a touchdown.

As a four-star member of Jim Harbaugh‘s last recruiting class in 2010, Nottingham was rated by as the No. 4 pro-style quarterback in the country.
