It only took a few days for Tommy Stevens to become the second-most high profile backup quarterback in the Big Ten to enter the transfer portal, with the decision of Ohio State's Matthew Baldwin. Still, he should have his suitors.

Now that he's departed Penn State, Stevens has the entire college football landscape at his fingers for his final year of eligibility.

As for where he might end up in 2019, a recent report from PennLive hints at a few options for Stevens. Among them are a trio of Big Ten schools: Indiana, Illinois, and Rutgers.

Stevens is an Indiana native, so the Hoosiers would offer some home ties, and has an open battle at quarterback.

Illinois and Rutgers are similarly seeking new quarterbacks and PennLive reported that assistants from the two schools have started following Stevens on his social media accounts.

SEC giants Mississippi State were also named an option since former Penn State offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead is now the Bulldogs' head coach.

As for potential landing spots for Stevens, his home state Indiana Hoosiers have been batted around as one possible destination, as has Mississipi State, where old PSU offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead is now the head coach. Rutgers and Illinois, both of which could use help under center, have also had assistants start following Stevens on social media.

In four years at Penn State Stevens, appeared in 20 games, going 24-of-41 for 304 yards and four touchdowns in quarterback spot duty. He has also played at numerous other offensive positions, and racked up 506 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on the ground, as well as 62 receiving yards and two scores through the airs.
