After deciding to leave Purdue earlier this month, quarterback Danny Etling has decided to spend his final two years at LSU, as it was learned he will enroll with the school this fall.
Etling, who was vying for the starting job at Purdue this season, decide he wanted a fresh start and LSU was the right fit. He will have to sit out next season, as per transfer rules, but will have two years of eligibility left starting in the 2016 season.
More from Greg Ostendorf of ESPN.com:
The move gives LSU four scholarship quarterbacks on the roster this fall with Etling, Anthony Jennings, Brandon Harris and Justin McMillan. The Tigers also have a commitment from ESPN 300 quarterback Feleipe Franks, who is expected to join the mix in 2016.
This season, Jennings and Harris are currently competing for the No. 1 spot, though Jennings was one of three LSU players to be arrested and subsequently suspended after an altercation last week. Neither quarterback was able to secure the job last year as both struggled when given the opportunity.
Etling started 12 games in his career at Purdue, and finished with 2,490 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions as a Boilermaker. He chose the Tigers after interest from Arkansas as well.
