There is a reason he wanted out and it had nothing to do with the scandal. The dude was benched at Penn St after a concussion and never saw meaningful snaps after that. He tried to transfer in 2011 but Paterno said no. When the NCAA said all players could leave if they wanted with no delay, he took off.
He never did anything worth mentioning at Penn St and is the reason he was passed up on the depth chart. By the time he transferred he was 3rd string.
His role at LSU is to add depth as someone recently said and he also has a big role as a scout QB.
