Penn State graduate transfer quarterback Tommy Stevens will finish his college career in the SEC. Stevens is off to Mississippi State.
He announced his commitment to the Bulldogs moments ago on Twitter. In Starkville, he’ll reunite with Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead, his former offensive coordinator at Penn State.
In addition to Mississippi State, Stevens visited Illinois, Miami (Ohio) and Kentucky. He has one year of eligibility remaining and can play immediately.
“I am very blessed to have the opportunity to go to a place like MSU, where I can create more relationships and more experiences,” Stevens wrote on Twitter. “A place that will give me the opportunity to compete at the highest level and also a place where I can expand my education even further.”

At Penn State, Stevens backed up Trace McSorley, but was also used as a receiver and runner. Over the last three seasons, Stevens rushed for 506 yards and eight touchdowns on 76 carries while catching 14 passes for 62 yards and two touchdowns.
As a passer, Stevens is 24-of-41 in his college career, throwing for 304 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.
A former three-star recruit out of Indianapolis (Ind.) Decatur, Stevens will compete for the starting job in Starkville. The Bulldogs lost starter Nick Fitzgerald to the NFL.
