Former Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden is expected to be among the players reporting to LSU’s campus Wednesday for the start of preseason practices.
Bolden (6-foot-3, 214 pounds) is a junior from Orchard Lake, Mich. He has three years left in which to complete his final two years of eligibility.
Bolden was given permission by Penn State to contact other schools on July 22, one day before the NCAA hammered the Nittany Lions program with unprecedented sanctions in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal.
Bolden visited the LSU campus over the weekend, according to a source.
As part of the sanctions, the NCAA ruled that any Penn State players wishing to transfer could do so without having to sit out a year as is normal when moving from one Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) school to another.
Former Penn State players also do not count against a team’s scholarship limits.
Two other Penn State players have transferred out so far: running back Silas Redd to Southern California and safety Tim Buckley to North Carolina State. A report Tuesday night said tight end Kevin Haplea is also leaving, but has not specified a school.
