BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Les Miles confirms that former reserve Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden has joined the Tigers.

Bolden is allowed to transfer immediately because of NCAA sanctions against the Nittany Lions football program stemming from the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.

LSU, which reported for fall camp Wednesday, already has its starting quarterback spot set with junior Zach Mettenberger. However, Miles says Bolden "is talented and will be given every opportunity to compete."

Bolden, who has two years of college eligibility left and ample playing experience, likely will compete for a backup role this season with Stephen Rivers, the younger brother of NFL QB Philip Rivers.

A spot recently opened up for another QB at LSU after recruit Jeremy Liggins was unable to qualify academically and decided to enroll in junior college.
