Nick Patti

Blake Bortles will not be at the headfront of the Golden Knights in 2014 so the competition for starting quarterback is in full swing. Now, there has been another name added to the battle.

Nick Patti, a transfer from Boise State, has just been ruled eligible for the 2014 season by the NCAA. According to The Orlando SentinelPatti was given a hardship waiver that allows him to start playing immediately instead of sitting out a season under typical NCAA transfer rules.

UCF head coach George O’Leary is still considering the quarterback position right now and according to College Football Talk, he expects to let the competition continue this summer, leading up to the season opener against Penn State in Ireland.
