The Mississippi State Bulldogs bolstered their signal caller situation a bit on Friday.

Penn State Nittany Lions quarterback Tommy Stevens announced that he’s transferring to Mississippi State. Stevens made the announcement on his personal Twitter account Friday morning.

Stevens was a member of Penn State’s 2015 recruiting class. The Decatur Central (IN) alum was a three-star prospect coming out of high school, ranked 647th nationally, 22nd among dual threat quarterbacks and ninth in the state of Indiana.

After not playing his freshman season, Stevens spent the last three years backing up Trace McSorley. Stevens attempted 41 passes at PSU, completing 24 of them for 304 yards, a Y/A of 7.4 with four touchdowns to one interception. As a runner, he compiled 506 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns, as well.
