Rutgers Football News & Notes: QB Tom Savage To Transfer

After a frustrating 2010 season, Rutgers sophomore quarter Tom Savage has decided to transfer to a different school, says

As a freshman, Savage came to Rutgers as a highly-touted prospect.

In his first season, Savage performed well. However, his second season, which featured sloppy play and an injury, is when things went sour.

When Savage returned from his injury, he split playing time with freshman Chas Dodd, who played in 11 games for the Scarlet Knights. Savage played in just six games.

"'We wish Tom and Casey (Turner) the best in their future endeavors,' said Schiano.

Savage played in 18 games during his two-year career in Piscataway and competed 52.2 percent of his passes. He finished his career with 2,732 yards passing with 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions."

According to's Big East Blogger Brain Bennett:

"Rutgers said he had been granted a "conditional" release," wrote Bennett. "Which likely means he will not be allowed to transfer to any team on the Scarlet Knights schedule. Does he go to an FCS school where he can play right away, or does he move to an FBS team where he'll have to sit out a year before suiting up."
