Penn State Scandal: Rob Bolden Visits LSU, According To Reports

While many Penn State players are standing by commitments to play for the Nittany Lions, others are exploring their options including quarterback Rob Bolden.

According to The Times-Picayune, Bolden made an official visit with LSU over the weekend. If he were to transfer there, he would not have to sit out the 2012 season.

Bolden, a junior, has made 16 starts in his career at Penn State but his numbers haven't exactly been eye-popping. He has completed 165-of-328 passes for 2,045 yards while throwing seven touchdowns while losing 14 interceptions.

This move appears to be puzzling from LSU's perspective, but the Tigers may be willing to give him a chance. He was once rated the fourth-best quarterback prospect out of high school and was a four-star recruit.

Bolden showed interest in transferring before the 2012 season.
