BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Multiple media outlets have reported Penn State quarterback Robert Bolden visited LSU over the weekend and is considering transferring to the Tigers.

The incoming junior would be eligible to suit up and play right away. He could possibly be the backup to quarterback Zach Mettenberger.

In 2010, Bolden was the first freshman in 100 years to start under center for the Nittany Lions and his numbers were fine.

He completed 112 of 193 passes for 1,360 yards with five touchdowns and seven interceptions for a 118.5 QB rating.

However, he didn't progress as a sophomore.

He completed only 53 of 135 passes for 685 yards with two touchdowns and another seven interceptions for a 76.4 QB rating.

He reportedly was not in the mix to start this season and was behind two other quarterbacks during spring ball.

Bolden had a taste of SEC football when Penn State faced Alabama in Happy Valley last season.

Nick Saban's Crimson Tide knocked No. 1 senseless and smothered the Nittany Lions in a 27-11 victory.

Bolden completed only 11 of 29 passes for 144 yards and an interception in the game.

To be fair, the Alabama defense crushed basically every quarterback it played last season.
