NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Former LSU reserve quarterback Stephen Rivers says he’s enrolling at Vanderbilt, where he plans to play this fall.
Rivers, the younger brother of San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, has used only two seasons of eligibility after taking a redshirt year at LSU in 2011. Vanderbilt also announced Wednesday that he’s enrolled at the school.
He spent 2012 as Zach Mettenberger’s backup, seeing limited action in four games. He entered 2013 expecting to be Mettenberger’s backup again, but fell behind Anthony Jennings in the depth chart.
Rivers graduated from LSU this spring and was granted a release to play immediately at another school. Rivers says he hopes to eventually play in the NFL and has been looking to join a program where he’d be a candidate to start.
