Former LSU senior QB Stephen Rivers enrolled at Vanderbilt.

The 6-foot-6, 230-pounder graduated last month and is eligible to play immediately. He'll now compete with redshirt sophomore Patton Robinette and redshirt freshman Johnny McCrary for the wide-open Commodores' starting QB gig. Rivers wants to play in the NFL and sought a program that would allow him to compete for playing time right away. "I'm happy for Stephen and looking forward to having him join our program," Commodores coach Derek Mason said. "Stephen brings both ability and experience to our team, and he fits the offensive system we will run under (offensive coordinator) Karl Dorrell. I'm looking forward to seeing great competition at the quarterback position this August."

Rivers, the younger brother of Chargers' QB Philip, will graduate in May, so he will be eligible to play immediately. LSU placed no transfer restrictions on him. He'll stay in the SEC, but LSU and Vanderbilt are not scheduled to play in 2014, barring a title run by both to the conference championship game.

Coach Les Miles is pleased with the development of backup QB Stephen Rivers.

With Zach Mettenberger the much-heralded new starter in Baton Rouge, there is the need to develop a capable backup. Mettenberger’s 11 attempts last season represent the entire playing experience at the major college level for LSU’s quarterbacks. Rivers, who will be a sophomore, appears ready to be the Tigers’ primary backup as Miles has expressed satisfaction with the 6-foot-7 QB’s development. Rivers is the brother of veteran NFL QB Phillip.

Stephen Rivers, brother of NFLer Philip, is getting a long look as he competes to be Zach Mettenberger’s top backup.

Rivers is one of two redshirt freshmen (Jerrard Randall) competing to be the Tigers’ primary backup in 2012. At 6-foot-7 and from outstanding football stock, Rivers is a true pro-style signal caller who has demonstrated a solid understanding of the offense as LSU’s spring schedule winds down.
