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.
