Rob Bolden Granted Release; Visits LSU

Late last night, this rumor took a turn toward the truth, as former starting quarterback Rob Bolden was not only in Baton Rouge visiting LSU, but also apparently released from his scholarship before the NCAA sanctions were handed down.

First, the LSU thing, from the Times-Picayune:

"Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden is making an official visit to LSU this weekend and might transfer to the Tigers program, a source close to the situation said Sunday."

Then, from Jeff Nelson, via OnwardState:

It's also been reported (multiple sources) that Bolden is also officially off the Penn State roster.

Some of you will cheer. Some will roll your eyes at those who cheer. Some will shrug. But no matter what, it was a long and tumultuous ride for the kid from Michigan. He started as a true freshman, played well until getting hurt, but couldn't ever recover. Bolden wanted to leave after the 2010 season, but wasn't given his release. Now, a year and a half later, he may finally be able to get that fresh start he so desperately needs.

If Bolden does move on to another program, good for him. He wasn't going to suddenly break through the top three on the depth chart between now and next week. Best of luck to him, and the potential we knew he had, but could never harness at Penn State.
