Penn State recruiting: Quarterback Tyler Ferguson commits to Nittany Lions

Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

Tyler Ferguson has signed a letter of intent to play football at Penn State University.

Quarterback Tyler Ferguson has signed a national letter of intent to play football at Penn State University, according to a press release from the school's athletic department on Thursday. Ferguson verbally committed to Penn State last Friday. The Nittany Lions turned to Ferguson after being spurned by Iowa Western's Jake Waters, who ended up at Kansas State.

Ferguson plans to enroll at the school in January and will be eligible to play during the 2013 season.

Ferguson spent last season playing for the College of the Sequoias in Visalia, California. He registered 2,614 passing yards and 22 touchdowns in 10 games. His ability to complete upwards of 55 percent of his passes was second best in the California Community College Athletic Association's Central Valley Conference.

Prior to playing in junior college, Ferguson led Ridgeview High School to a 6-0 record before breaking his collarbone, which forced him to miss the remainder of the 2011 season. In the games that he did play, Ferguson registered 1,275 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior.
