Jake Rudock free to transfer, 'no strings attached'

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz told reporters Wednesday that he signed quarterback Jake Rudock's transfer papers "with no strings attached."

Rudock is a graduate transfer and has one year of eligibility remaining. He visited Michigan last week; the Wolverines currently have three scholarship quarterbacks in spring camp.

Graduate transfers can play immediately out of conference, but the Big Ten treats an intra-conference grad transfer the same as a regular transfer, and the player must sit a season. It is unclear whether the Big Ten would allow Rudock to play this fall if he transfers to a Big Ten team.

Rudock is still working out with the Iowa team, Ferentz said, but is not on the two-deep chart.

"He hasn't reached a decision yet, so he remains with the program at this time," Ferentz said, according to the Quad-City Times. We want what is best for Jake.

"If his heart isn't into being here, it is probably best that he go somewhere else. That is what he has to decide."
