Western Kentucky redshirt junior QB Tyler Ferguson is eligible to play for WKU in 2016.
The odyssey is finally reaching its conclusion. Ferguson has transferred three times since beginning his collegiate career. He began at a JUCO, transferred to Penn State, lost out to five-star recruit Christian Hackenberg for starting duties, transferred to Louisville and then hopped to Western Kentucky when Bobby Petrino sided with his own high school recruits behind center. Ferguson has plenty of competition in the race to replace star QB Brandon Doughty. USF transfer Mike White, redshirt senior Nelson Fishback, redshirt sophomore Drew Eckels and redshirt freshman Reese Ryan will all be given a shot. The Hilltoppers are also expected to bring in two-star recruit QB Steven Duncan. Jan 22 - 1:47 PM

Former Penn State QB Tyler Ferguson confirmed that he will transfer to Louisville, reports ESPN's Josh Moyer.

Score one for Bobby Petrino, who also had a commitment from Ferguson to join him at Western Kentucky prior to moving on to greener pastures. Ferguson, who was stuck behind true freshman Christian Hackenberg on the depth chart with the Nittany Lions, still has his redshirt season available. He'll sit out a season and have two years eligibility remaining beginning in 2015.

Penn State sophomore QB Tyler Ferguson has been granted his release from scholarship and plans on transferring.

Ferguson is stuck behind true freshman Christian Hackenberg on the depth chart. We believe the window for Nittany Lions to transfer without eligibility penalty has passed, but Ferguson still has his redshirt season available.

Penn State coach Bill O'Brien's most recent depth chart lists sophomore QB Tyler Ferguson and freshman QB Christian Hackenberg as co-starters.

Ferguson and Hackenberg have been listed as co-starters for months. O'Brien implied last week that he'd name a starter by the weekend, but that obviously didn't happen. Ferguson spent last year at a California junior college and was an early enrollee at Penn State in January. Hackenberg is a five-star recruit who ranked as the No. 24 overall player in the country and the No. 2 pro-style passer in the class of 2013. Hackenberg didn't enroll early, which meant he started a little behind Ferguson after missing spring practice.

Penn State coach Bill O'Brien said Tuesday that he'll name a starting quarterback between sophomore Tyler Ferguson and freshman Christian Hackenberg by the end of the week.

The Nittany Lions host Syracuse in Aug. 31's opener. "I'd say it's pretty close right now," O'Brien said. "I'd say by the end of the week we'll probably make a decision. But whatever we do we'll do what's best for the team. We have two really talented guys there." The winner of the competition to replace Matt McGloin and his 3,271 passing yards last season will immediately become intriguing in Big 10-only fantasy leagues. Ferguson spent last year at the JUCO level, while Hackenberg was a high school senior in 2012.

Sophomore Tyler Ferguson and freshman Christian Hackenberg were listed as co-QB starters on Penn State's updated depth chart.

Ferguson had not separated himself from former Penn State quarterback Steve bench, who recently transferred to USF, and obviously the same can be said for the freshman Hackenberg. Neither passer was a part of the team during the 2012 season, with Ferguson spending the year at JUCO and Hackenberg wrapping up his final season of high school football.
