 Former Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden visited LSU last weekend and is expected to report to camp today according to sources from the Times Picayune.

The 6 foot 3 quarterback from Orchard Lake, Michigan threw for 2,045 yards and seven touchdowns in two seasons with the Nittany Lions. He made 16 starts, with Penn State going 11-5 in those games.

A scholarship and roster spot is expected to be open after Tiger recruit Jeremy Liggins was unable to qualify academically. The quarterback prospect will remain at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, where he enrolled this summer in hopes of gaining eligibility.

Bolden is not expected to compete for the starting quarterback job as that belongs to junior Zach Mettenberger. However, Bolden does give the Tigers a backup QB with game experience. Other QBs on Les Miles‘ roster include two freshmen who have never taken a collegiate snap in Stephen Rivers and Jerrard Randall.

Bolden is immediately eligible to play and does not have to sit out a year as part of the waiver granted by the NCAA to Penn State players and incoming recruits in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Bolden will have two years of eligibility for LSU.
