Penn State Quarterback Kevin Newsome to Transfer

According to BlueWhiteIllustrated.com, sources say that Kevin Newsome intends to seek a transfer from Penn State.

With the conclusion of the 2009 season and Darryl Clark’s graduation, Newsome was expected to start the 2010 season under center. His mobility and knowledge of the Spread HD system has supposed to give him an edge over fellow carry-over Matt McGloin.

The discussion soon turned away from Newsome, though, as the two-man battle for signal-caller was cut to freshman Rob Bolden and McGloin late in the summer. Bolden was eventually named the starter and when he out with a head injury during the Minnesota game and struggled in the first half of the Northwestern game, McGloin took the reins and never looked back.

With Paul Jones being added to the quarterback discussion next year, Newsome seems to have decided to move onto greener pastures, much like Pat Devlin did after the 2008 season.

Check back with Onward State for more updates when they become available.
