According to 247Sports.com's Penn State site, Lions247, Penn State quarterback Tyler Ferguson has been granted his release and will transfer from the school at the end of the semester.

Which, honestly, is not a move that comes as much of a surprise.

Ferguson joined the Nittany Lions before the 2013 season as a junior college transfer, and was expected to compete with incoming freshman Christian Hackenberg. Hackenberg would go on to win the starting job, and have an promising first season for the Nittany Lions, finishing with 2,955 yards, 20 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

The highlight of Hackenberg's season was his latest performance, in which he threw for 339 yards and four touchdowns to upset Wisconsin in Madison.

Considering Hackenberg will only be a sophomore next season, it obviously became clear to Ferguson that if he's ever going to see the field as a starting quarterback before his college career is over, the odds of it happening aren't at Penn State.

As for where Ferguson will end up, there's no word, but he did have offers from Houston, Akron and Florida Atlantic before choosing Penn State. Wherever he ends up, Ferguson will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out a season.
