Tyler Gabbert may not be a Cardinal after all

According to multiple sources, including Jason Anderson of ESPN Radio 680, former Missouri quarterback Tyler Gabbert has left the Louisville football team and no longer plans on being a member of the program.

A source told me this afternoon that Gabbert, who had been in Louisville for less than a week, left this morning to return home and has no plans to come back. According to Anderson and co-host Andy Sweeney, Gabbert would like to re-join the team at Missouri, but the Tiger staff is not interested. Mizzou recently received a commitment from highly-touted class of 2012 QB Maty Mauk.

I contacted U of L for confirmation of Gabbert's departure this afternoon and was told that information on the QB was not available and would not be available until Charlie Strong returns next Wednesday from a trip out of the country.

Gabbert's transfer to Louisville was puzzling from the start, as he was leaving Mizzou in search of more snaps but walking into a situation at U of L where playing time figured to be even more difficult to come by. Still, his addition to the roster would have added considerable depth for the future, and also freed up rising sophomore Dominique Brown to make a position switch.
