Tyler Bruggman has made the decision to transfer out of the Washington State program and will be leaving Pullman later today, a source confirmed with CF.C on Sunday morning. The source did not have any insight on why Bruggman was leaving.
The 6-1, 200-pounder had his ups and downs this spring and was competing with redshirt-freshman QB Luke Falk for the backup position to WSU senior and starting signal caller Connor Halliday. Bruggman and Falk were expected to go head-to-head this fall for the number two spot.
COMING OUT OF Phoenix's Brophy Prep in 2012, Bruggman was rated four stars and the 25th best QB in the nation by Scout.com. He chose Washington State over Arizona, Arizona State, BYU, Duke, Arkansas, Michigan State and several others.
He becomes the second WSU scholarship QB to transfer since the end of the 2013 season. Austin Apodaca left Pullman in early February and has since landed at Mesa Community College. Text messages and calls to Bruggman have not been returned.
With Bruggman leaving Pullman, QBs on the WSU roster include Halliday, Falk and redshirt freshman Connor Ennis. Fort Lauderdale, Fla., QB Peyton Bender, a three-star prospect for the class of 2014, is also in Pullman taking summer courses and participating in offseason workouts.
WSU QB depth takes a hit, Bruggman gone
