New Mississippi State coach Mike Leach already had one transfer quarterback coming in and now has another signal caller packing his bags for Starkville. Former Vanderbilt QB Allan Walters announced on Tuesday that he, too, will be transferring to the Bulldogs to join the mix along with Stanford’s K.J. Costello. Costello is a graduate transfer and is eligible to play immediately while Walter will have to sit out next season unless the NCAA grants him a waiver.
“Excited to finally be apart of the @HailStateFB family, can’t wait to get to Starkville and help build something great!,” Walters tweeted.
The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder from Chatham, New Jersey appeared in three games as a redshirt freshman for the Commodores last season. Walters completed 2 of 9 passes for 36 yards and one interception.
