Georgia Tech QB transferring to LaTech

Former Boise State reneger Taylor Bennett will be transferring from Georgia Tech to Louisiana Tech this season, and he will be eligible to start at quarterback for the Bulldogs.

Normally, a student-athlete transferring from one Division I-A program to another would have to sit out a year, but Louisiana Tech has a graduate-school major that Georgia Tech does not, so the NCAA approved Bennett's eligibility request on academic grounds.

Bennett once gave Boise State a verbal commitment, but he chose instead to play at Georgia Tech. In addition to his wanting a graduate degree, he also did not want anything to do with the spread option offense that new coach Paul Johnson was introducing. Apparently, Bennett prefers the staid, three-and-out offense of Louisiana Tech.
