Reports: Kevin Newsome Transferring From Penn State

Reports, including this one from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ron Musselman, are flying around the Internet this afternoon that Penn State's presumptive third-string quarterback Kevin Newsome has left the team and intends to seek transfer.

The reports may be a bit premature, however, as the Daily Collegian's Mike Still quotes Kevin Newsome Sr. as saying nothing is set in stone yet.

"We don't really have any set details of anything right now," Newsome Sr. said in a phone call. "It's possible. Right now, of course as you can imagine, we're just trying to work through some things, and sort a lot of things out."

Regardless, this doesn't exactly look promising for the Nittany Lions. With fellow backup Paul Jones set to sit out the season with academic problems, the Lions are down to two scholarship quarterbacks, Robert Bolden and Matthew McGloin, if Kevin Newsome in fact decides to leave Happy Valley.  An injury to either Bolden or McGloin would put walk-on Shane McGregor in line to be Penn State's primary back up, something that will probably keep the coaching staff up nights if it actually happens.
