Penn State recruiting: Nittany Lions reportedly look to Tyler Ferguson

Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

To fill in for departing senior Matt McGloin, Penn State hopes to add at least one more quarterback to its roster.

Now that quarterback Jake Waters announced that he is heading to Kansas State and not Penn State, the Nittany Lions have reportedly shifted their attention to junior college quarterback Tyler Ferguson. Bob Flounders of the Patriot-News cites several PSU blogs that reported that Ferguson is "the next man" on the recruiting list.

Ferguson, a 6'3, 180-pound QB from California, is a logical choice for the Nittany Lions. With senior Matthew McGloin on his way out, Steven Bench is currently the only scholarship quarterback set to attend spring practices for Penn State. Ferguson, who played at California's College of Sequoias, is eligible to transfer immediately, so he could attend practices in the spring.

The Lions also expect to have verbal commit Christian Hackenberg at QB next year, but the true freshman won't be able to practice with the team until summer. For now, Penn State is setting its sights on Ferguson, who has the experience and ability to make an immediate impact.
