Former Louisville quarterback Kyle Bolin has announced on Twitter that he will transfer to Rutgers University for the 2017 season.
Bolin announced his transfer shortly after Louisville’s spring game a week and a half ago. Texas, Cincinnati, Northern Illinois and Western Michigan were also on the QB’s shortlist, but the former U of L quarterback chose to go to New Jersey to play for Rutgers.
We at CSZ want to wish the best of luck to one of the first athletes we started covering from day one. Go kill it Kyle!
Rutgers will enter 2017 with second-year head coach Chris Ash, coming off of a 2-10 record last season. Former Minnesota HC Jerry Kill will also join Bolin next season, looking to improve an offense that finished 127th in scoring and last in total offense.
As a fifth-year grad transfer, Bolin will be eligible to play in 2017 instead of sitting out the season. It’s expected that Bolin will immediately compete for the starting quarterback position, alongside returning starter Gio Rescigno.
Bolin leaves Louisville with 2104 career passing yards, 13 touchdowns and ten interceptions. He’s most remembered for his heroics in the 2014 edition of the Governor’s Cup rivalry, throwing for 381 yards and three touchdowns off the bench in a 44-40 win over Kentucky.
