YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) – Rob Bolden transferred to Eastern Michigan from LSU.
Coach Chris Creighton said Friday night he’s glad the quarterback will end his college career with the Eagles. He will be eligible to play this fall as a graduate transfer.
The Orchard Lake, Mich., native went to Penn State out of high school and started in 15 games over two seasons. Bolden threw seven touchdown passes and 14 interceptions for the Nittany Lions. He was allowed to transfer immediately because of NCAA sanctions against Penn State’s football program stemming from the Jerry Sandusky scandal, but he did not play in a game for the Tigers.
Bolden, who didn’t play in a game at LSU, was switched to wide receiver from QB during spring practice.
