Kevin Newsome Transferring To Temple, According To Report

Kevin Newsome could soon return to Happy Valley...just not as a member of the Penn State football team.

Mike Kern of the Philadelphia Daily News reports that the former Nittany Luions quarterback will be transferring to Temple this fall, according to sources. The Owls will visit State College on Sept. 22 this coming season, so the stage would appear to be set for Newsome to clash with some of his former teammates.

In two seasons at Penn State (2009-2010) Newsome completed 14-24 passes for 144 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. He also ran for 154 yards and three touchdowns. He decided to transfer before the 2011 season after he fell behind Rob Bolden and Matthew McGloin on Penn State's depth chart last spring.

As Kern points out, Newsome will have to unseat incumbent starting quarterback Chris Coyer to see time under center for Temple. The soon-to-be junior completed 30-50 passes for 463 yards and six touchdowns against no interceptions this past season. He also ran for 562 yards and three touchdowns on 69 carries, good for an 8.1 yard per carry average.

Because Newsome sat out 2011, he'll be able to play immediately in 2012.
