Former Missouri Quarterback Tyler Gabbert Headed To Louisville

On Wednesday evening, Dave Matter at the Columbia Tribune wrote that former Tigers Quarterback appears head to Louisville and on Thursday morning Yahoo's Tom Dienhart appeared on board with the speculation as being true.

As we mentioned last month, it appeared likely that Gabbert would take a hard look at Lousville, to be reunited with new quarterbacks coach Shawn Watson, whom both of the Gabbert brothers got to know very well when they were being courted in the recruiting process by Nebraska, where Watson was previously offensive coordinator.

Tyler Gabbert will be sitting out the 2011 season because of NCAA transfer rules, but is expected to battle for the starting posistion the following year. Meanwhile, with the graduation of Blaine Gabbert, Mizzou will likely hand the reigns to James Franklin for the upcoming season. Ashton Glaser and Jimmy Costello will likely compete for the number two spot, while incoming freshman Corbin Berkstresser will push for playing time as well.
