Tyler Bruggman transferring?

 

Tyler Bruggman has become the second quarterback to transfer from the Washington State football program this offseason, according to a report on Twitter from WazzuWatch.com's Britton Ransford. I have not yet confirmed the report. Bruggman was the first major quarterback signed by coach Mike Leach at WSU, and it was widely assumed that he would take over as the starter when Connor Halliday graduates.

Even the transfer of backup quarterback Austin Apodaca was supposed to break up the logjam at quarterback and pave the way for Bruggman to back up Halliday next season. But Bruggman did not look ready this spring and former walk-on Luke Falk played well enough to at least create a controversy if not take the No. 2 spot outright. Both Bruggman and Falk redshirted as freshmen last season.

If Bruggman is indeed leaving the program it leaves he Cougars membrane-thin behind Halliday, a fifth-year senior, with just Falk and incoming freshman Peyton Bender as scholarship quarterbacks.
