Kyle Bolin will spend the final season of his college career playing quarterback for Rutgers. The former Louisville signal caller announced his decision on Twitter Wednesday morning.
I'm proud to say my next home will be at Rutgers University. #TheHunt is on.— Kyle Bolin (@_kb14_) April 26, 2017
Bolin figures to have a decent shot at coming in and earning the starting QB spot for the Scarlet Knights. Rutgers began spring practice with only three scholarship quarterbacks and ended it with just one. Former U of L commit Tylin Oden was dismissed from the program and Zach Allen suffered a torn ACL. Bolin’s primary competition figures to be Giovanni Rescigno, who started five games last season and both began and ended Rutgers’ spring session as the team’s QB1.
Bolin started six games in his three seasons at Louisville, including U of L’s Belk Bowl game against Georgia in 2014 and the Cardinals’ games against Clemson, Syracuse, Virginia, Pitt and Kentucky in 2015. For his U of L career, Bolin threw for 2,104 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Rutgers was likely the worst power conference team in college football last season, going 0-9 in the Big Ten and 2-10 overall. They lost to league powers Ohio State and Michigan by a combined score of 136-0. Here’s hoping Kyle can help change that.
