Pat Devlin to Delaware

Somewhere Joe Flacco nods in agreement.

Following in Joe Flacco's footsteps, Pat Devlin became the latest high-profile recruit to transfer out of a Division I-A program and onto the roster of Division I-AA Delaware when the former Penn State quarterback committed to the Blue Hens yesterday.

With this move, the redshirt sophomore is hoping to repeat Flacco's success at Delaware. A transfer from Pittsburgh, Flacco wound up being drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of April's NFL draft.

Thus ends all the speculation and rumor that has permeated the message boards since Devlin left Penn State. It's no surprise and although the timing of his transfer was somewhat undesirable for Penn State fans, we still wish him well for the rest of his career, the move makes all the sense in the world; he wasn't going to see meaningful playing time until his senior year.
