The contenders for starting quarterback of the University of Louisville football team have been thinned by one.
Tyler Ferguson, a 6-foot-4, 217-pound junior, is transferring to another yet-to-be-named school, having fallen deep in the potential starting rotation. He apparently sensed his future wasn’t at UofL, having fallen behind Reggie Bonnafon, Will Gardner, Kyle Bolin and even freshman Lamar Jackson during fall camp.
Ferguson’s college career has been a nomadic existence, with the latest transfer his third in four years.
He began in 2012 at College of the Sequoias, a California community college where he threw for 2,614 yards and 22 touchdowns. The following season, he initially committed to Houston before changing his mind and going to Penn State, where he played in five games, completing 10 of 15 pass attempts for 155 yards and a touchdown.
Ferguson will have to sit out another season if he transfers to another FBS school but he would play immediately if he drops a level to an FCS school.
Tough road, the transfer trail. Hopefully he finally finds some playing time at his next stop.
