    I'm surprised it took this long even though he was switched over to WR.

    #LSU is confirming that backup QB/WR Rob Bolden is transferring and will play his final year of football at another school. @LSUfball

    Best of luck to Mr. Bolden who has had quite a journey.

    Sort of wanted him to stick around b/c of how thin we are at the QB position. Couple of injuries and we are in trouble.

    He needs to stick around college long enough to get a degree- he's going to need it.

    I think he was already behind Krags & Bergeron on the depth chart, that's why he moved to WR. So even if both qb's were to get hurt he likely wouldn't have gotten any playing time at qb.

    What's this his 12th year of college anyway? Didn't he hand the ball off to kijana Carter?

    They say he was moved back to QB after Rettig transferred and was #3 on the chart.

    More on Jared....

    Excellent athlete who turned down scholarship offers at other SEC schools for the opportunity to walk on to the football and baseball programs at LSU … decided to forgo his LSU football career and devote full attention to baseball in the spring of 2012 … a member of the 2011 SEC champion LSU football team as a back-up quarterback.

    Earned all-state and all-district recognition in baseball (2B) and football (QB) and was selected to play in the 2011 Louisiana High School Baseball All-Star Game … hit .371 in 2011 at Barbe High with nine home runs, 33 RBI and 15 stolen bases … committed only four errors all season as a second baseman … also played two seasons for the Barbe basketball team … a member of the Academic Honor Roll.

    Trey Quinn caught 67 passes for 1,238 yards and nine TDs as a freshman when his quarterback was current LSU baseball outfielder Jared Foster.

    “I think Clise is a very, very fine third if we’ve got to go to him,” Miles said. “I feel like we’re fine (at quarterback). I still think there’s some competition that’ll be served. I like where we’re at there.” - Les Miles
