After an offseason that saw LSU fans wondering about transfer quarterbacks from Ohio State and Notre Dame, the Tigers did ultimately end up with a transfer signal caller from that part of the country - former Purdue quarterback Danny Etling.
The 6-foot-2, 216-pounder from Terre Haute, Ind., sent signed scholarship players to LSU on Monday afternoon, making official his transfer following a weekend visit to Baton Rouge.
Etling, who played his prep ball at the same school as LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron, totaled 2,490 yards passing and 16 touchdowns against 12 interceptions while playing in 13 games the last two seasons at Purdue.
After he was beaten out by Austin Appleby last fall and had his place on the 2015 depth chart uncertain, Etling decided to transfer and Boilermakers coach Darrell Hazzell placed no restrictions on his move.
He'll now join an LSU quarterback stable with three players currently on board - junior Anthony Jennings, sophomore Brandon Harris and freshman Justin McMillan.
Etling will have to sit out the 2015 campaign due to transfer rules, but he will be eligible and 2016 and have two years remaining to play. By the time Etling is eligible, another quarterback is expected on campus in TigerTown in 2016 commitment Feleipe Franks.
