Former Penn State quarterback Steven Bench has decided to transfer and will land at South Florida. Bench would normally need to sit out a year but due to the Penn State sanctions will not have to do so. He will be a sophomore in 2013. USF is replacing four-year starter B.J. Daniels. Bench will compete for playing time this fall with senior Bobby Eveld and sophomore Matt Floyd. A Scout.com two-star prospect from Cairo, Ga., Bench made the announcement on his Twitter feed Thursday morning. "I've decided to attend the University of South Florida and become a bull!! DoSomething" he tweeted from his account, @SBench12. Ive decided to attend the University of South Florida and become a bull!! DoSomething Steven Bench (@SBench12) May 23, 2013 Bench appeared in two games for Penn State in 2012, completing 2 of 8 attempts. He decided to transfer after the Nittany Lions' spring game. "I thought that he got better throughout the spring," Penn State coach Bill O'Brien said during a stop on the Coaches' Caravan tour according to StateCollege.com. "And I have nothing but great things to say about him, and I felt that he still had room to get better and would still get reps here. No starter has been named, but I told him that going in that he may not get as many reps as some of the other guys but you're still going to get reps."
