Tyler Bruggman, a redshirt-freshman quarterback from Phoenix who was one of the highest-rated recruits of Mike Leach’s tenure at Washington State, is transferring out of the WSU program, according to the fan site WazzuWatch.com.

If Bruggman leaves, it means the only scholarship quarterbacks in the first two of Leach’s three WSU recruiting classes have left the program. Last winter, Austin Apodaca, originally committed to the Paul Wulff regime but retained by Leach and a 2012 signee, decided to transfer.

Bruggman was a four-star recruit from Brophy Prep in Phoenix who turned down a late push by Arizona State to sign with WSU in February 2013. A tweet by Bruce Feldman of FoxSports.com indicated Bruggman has been released from his scholarship and will be able to transfer to one of four schools: Arkansas, Louisville, Duke and Indiana.

WSU has fifth-year senior Connor Halliday as its starter, while Bruggman had faced a stiff spring battle for the backup job with walk-on Luke Falk, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound Logan, Utah product who was one of the surprises of the session.

Joining Halliday and Falk in fall camp will be Floridian Peyton Bender, a freshman.
