Ex-Penn State QB lands at USF

Penn State Spring Game AP

Nearly a month to the day it was announced that he would be transferring from Penn State, Steven Bench has found a new home to continue his playing career.

On his Twitter account Thursday morning, the quarterback revealed that he has “decided to attend the University of South Florida and become a [B]ull!!”  USF was one of a handful of schools that Bench had considered since leaving the Nittany Lions last month.

The Bulls have not yet officially announced Bench’s addition to the football program.

As has been previously noted, Bench will be eligible to play immediately in 2013 because of Penn State’s NCAA sanctions.  He will have three years of eligibility remaining plus a redshirt season.

Along with the Bulls, Bench had also visited Mississippi State and North Carolina State. Both FIU and Temple were reportedly in the mix at some level.

As a true freshman last season, Bench appeared in two games and attempted seven passes.

    Who? This might be news to his mommy but not to football fans.

    Because “his mommy” is the only USF fan out there, right?

    Stevie-poo’s mommy here. I just wanted to say I am glad my son went to a program completely devoid of any other potential starting QBs. The incumbent looked to be unable to take a snap from center, and Steven can handle that. He is also pretty decent on the run and looks great in the sweater his grandma gave him for Christmas. Go Bulls!

    Steve is a good guy and deserves a chance to play. Unlike the situation at LB, PSU has good depth at QB and he wasn’t likely to get much playing time. It’s a good move for Steve and USF. Best of luck to both.
