Chris Laviano is reportedly heading west.
According to the Rutgers Barstool Sports Twitter account @BarstoolRU, the former Scarlet Knights quarterback will transfer to San Diego State:

Laviano announced his decision to transfer from the university three months ago. At San Diego State, he’ll have one year of eligibility remaining and he’ll be eligible immediately as a graduate transfer.
After a streak of 18 straight starts, Laviano was benched in the middle of the 2016 season after Rutgers started 0-4 in B1G play. Laviano finished his Rutgers career with 3,102 passing yards and 21 touchdowns.
He was, however, under center for one of the roughest stretches in program history.
Laviano was suspended for the first half of the 2015 season opener for breaking curfew and getting caught with a fake ID. That was the only game of Rutgers’ tumultuous 2015 season that he didn’t start.
Including Hayden Rettig and Mike Dare, Rutgers saw three quarterbacks leave the program this offseason.
