Rob Bolden staying at Penn State

By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer
As it seems it's becoming an annual tradition, there were rumors that Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden was looking to transfer after he was absent from voluntary workouts with the team last weekend. It appears these rumors were wrong.

Bolden's high school coach, Don Buchanan, told the Centre Daily Times that Bolden has no plans to ask for his release from Penn State.

Which may not seem like much, after all, Buchanan is only Bolden's high school coach, but it was Buchanon who put an end to the Bolden transfer rumors the last time they surfaced in State College.

Bolden's career at Penn State has been an odd one. He began the 2010 season as Penn State's starting quarterback, the first true freshman to do so under Joe Paterno. He lost his job after suffering a concussion that season and has never been able to take it back.

This spring Bolden was in a competition with both Matt McGloin and Paul Jones. During Penn State's spring game, Bolden completed half his 14 passes for 78 yards and 3 interceptions. Which would be a lot worse if both McGloin and Jones hadn't had lackluster performances as well.

During the 2011 season, Bolden completed less than 40 percent of his passes (53 for 135) and threw for only 2 touchdowns with 7 interceptions.
