Rutgers football gained a new quarterback when Class of 2019 prospect Cole Snyder announced his commitment to the Scarlet Knights on Tuesday night. However, less than 24 hours later, Rutgers has lost one of its quarterbacks, as walk-on Tom Flacco reportedly is transferring to Towson.
According to a report by NJ.com on Wednesday morning, Flacco is leaving Rutgers as a graduate transfer.

Flacco’s transfer isn’t all that surprising. Rutgers coach Chris Ash previously noted that the team’s quarterback competition is between Gio Rescigno, Johnathan Lewis and Artur Sitkowski.
According to the report, Flacco will have two seasons of eligibility remaining. Per NCAA graduate transfer rules, Flacco will immediately be eligible to play in the 2018 college football season with Towson.
This is the second time in his collegiate career that Flacco has transferred to another program. He began his college career at Western Michigan before transferring to Rutgers for last season. However, Flacco did not see any playing time with the Scarlet Knights.
He is the brother of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.
