Rutgers has added some much-needed depth to its quarterback room through transfer.
Sunday night, former Texas Tech quarterback McLane Carter announced via Twitter that he has committed to Rutgers. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound native of Texas will be a graduate transfer, meaning he’ll be immediately eligible for the Scarlet Knights in 2019. Carter has one year of eligibility remaining.
“Excited to start this next chapter at Rutgers University,” Carter wrote on Twitter.

Carter comes to Rutgers after playing in nine career games for the Red Raiders over the last two seasons. He completed 51-of-97 passes for 677 yards and four touchdowns. He also threw four interceptions in his career.
With his commitment, Carter creates a quarterback competition in Piscataway over the summer. Artur Sitkowski, who started 11 games for Rutgers last year, will now have to fend off Carter for the No. 1 spot on the depth chart.
The Scarlet Knights are coming off a 1-11 season last year without a B1G victory. The ranked dead last in the B1G in passing offense, total offense and scoring.
