WSU QB transfer interested in Louisville

Washington State quarterback Tyler Bruggman, a former four-star prospect, has been granted a release to speak with the Cardinals about the possibility of transferring.

The University of Louisville is a potential destination for former Washington State quarterback Tyler Bruggman. This according to FOXSports.com's Bruce Feldman who reported that sources inform that Bruggman has been granted release to speak with Louisville, along with Arkansas, Duke and Indiana.

Bruggman was a Scout.com four-star prospect out of Phoeniz (Az.) Brophy College Preparatory in 2012 and spent last season a redshirt with the Cougars.

Expected to compete for the backup spot this fall, Bruggman chose to take his talents elsewhere. He originally committed to Mike Leech after strongly considering Bobby Petrino at Arkansas, among others.

Rated in the Scout Top 300 and among the top 25 quarterbacks as a high school senior, Bruggman earned All-State honors after guiding his team to an 11-3 record. He threw for 2,803 yards with 33 touchdowns and eight interceptions, while also running for four more scores. He also earned Division I Section III Offensive Player of the Year .

Cardinal Authority will have more on Bruggman as interest continues to develop.
