QB Rasmussen Leaves Bobcats
Jordan Rasmussen was vying to be the starting quarterback at Montana State in 2008. Now he’s gone. According to an Associated Press shorty that just moved on the wire, Rasmussen has decided to leave the Bobcats.
Here’s the brief:
BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — A sophomore who was vying for the starting quarterback position at Montana State is leaving the team.
Jordan Rasmussen informed head coach Rob Ash of his decision Friday. Spokesman Bill Lamberty confirmed the move to Bozeman television station KTVM.
The redshirt sophomore was in a dead heat for the starting position with junior college transfer Mark Iddins.
Earlier this week, Oregon quarterback Cody Kempt signed scholarship papers to transfer to MSU. He redshirted at Oregon in 2006 and played sparingly last fall, completing six passes for 52 yards. He also rushed eight times for 21 yards.
It was unclear if Rasmussen would leave MSU altogether.
So, what to make of this? Well, for Montana State, they lose a kid Mike Kramer had originally recruited out of Washington and a player Rob Ash talked about as having great command of the team during spring ball. Still, Rasmussen never took a live snap. The Cats will still have seven quarterbacks in their program entering the fall.
This news almost surely whittles the QB battle down to Mark Iddins and Cody Kempt. Mark Desin, Montana’s all-time high school passing yardage leader, has been a fringe challenger so far this off-season.
