Former Orchard Lake St. Mary’s star quarterback Rob Bolden reportedly will transfer to Eastern Michigan from LSU.
Reports out of Louisiana indicated that Bolden was considering Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan, but Hondo Carpenter of SpartanNation.com wrote on Twitter that Bolden had picked the Eagles.
Bolden, 6-4 and 210 pounds, originally played quarterback Penn State but transferred to LSU, where he was moved to receiver. He caught one pass for 37 yards in the Tigers’ 2014 spring game and was not expected to get much playing time this season.
Bolden started as a true freshman at quarterback at Penn State in 2010 and played there two seasons. He sat out the 2012 season after transferring to LSU and did not see any game action in 2013.
If Bolden earned his undergraduate degree at LSU he might be able to play right away at EMU.
