So who’s next for Penn State?
With Jake Waters picking Kansas State over the Nittany Lions Thursday morning, many Penn State fans were wondering if there would be more than one quarterback on the roster when spring practice starts.
As soon as Waters chose to go to Manhattan, Kan., rumors started flying about Tyler Ferguson.
Ferguson was a first-year, junior college quarterback for the College of the Sequoias in California this past season where he threw for 2,614 yards and 24 touchdowns. The 6-4, 210 pounder also threw 12 interceptions.
While those numbers aren’t nearly as good as Waters (3,501 yards, 39 TDs, 3 INTs), it should be noted that this was his first year out of high school while it was Waters’ third. Ferguson’s numbers this past season are comparable to Waters’ first-year (really his second year) numbers for Iowa Western. Waters also played only two games his true first year because of injury. He wasn’t the outright starter that year either.
