Transfer-wise, the hiring of Bobby Petrino is already paying dividends for the Louisville football program.
Josh Moyer of ESPN.com is reporting that Tyler Ferguson has confirmed that he will be transferring to Louisville to continue his collegiate playing career. Ferguson had been slated to land at Western Kentucky before Petrino left the Hilltoppers for the Cardinals.
Appearing in four games this season, Ferguson completed 10-of-15 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown. In early December, Ferguson asked for and was granted his release from his Penn State scholarship.
Transferring to Happy Valley from the JUCO ranks in early 2013, Ferguson was involved in the competition for the Nittany Lions’ starting job beginning in the spring. The arrival of five-star recruit Christian Hackenberg over the summer ended Ferguson’s hope of being named the starter as the true freshman quickly grabbed the reins.
Shortly after Hackenberg arrived on campus, rumors surfaced that Ferguson was considering a transfer.
