Scout.com’s Fight On State web site is reporting that the Nittany Lions’ #2 quarterback, redshirt sophomore Pat Devlin, will transfer to another school before next season. Apparently, he has already left the program, which would make Cianciolo the backup for Daryll Clark for the Rose Bowl game against USC. A further issue is that Cianciolo is graduating, and that leaves Clark as the only quarterback on scholarship for 2009.
The report did not state where Devlin is heading, but FOS states that sources claim he’s looking toward the FCS (formerly known as Division I-AA).
Head coach Joe Paterno is expected to comment on the situation Friday, during Bowl Media Day.
More news as I get around to reading it, or when it happens, whichever comes last!
