Quarterback J.T. Levenseller to transfer from Washington State

PULLMAN — Sophomore quarterback J.T. Levenseller has left the Washington State football team, telling the coaches he intends to transfer.
Levenseller skipped the Cougars' scrimmage Saturday as he contemplated his future — the official word at the time was he missed due to illness — then told coach Paul Wulff on Sunday morning he was ready for a change.
"He's going to transfer," Wulff said. "The bottom line is, he's looking to play now and have an opportunity to contribute."
Levenseller took the grayshirt route after graduating from Pullman High in 2007. He enrolled at WSU in spring 2008 and was ticketed to redshirt last fall.
But injuries to Gary Rogers, Kevin Lopina and Marshall Lobbestael forced Levenseller to burn his redshirt. He appeared in four games and attempted 34 passes, completing 17 for 134 yards.
Levenseller entered this fall third on the depth chart behind senior Lopina and sophomore Lobbestael, who were designated co-starters. As workouts progressed, freshman Jeff Tuel moved up the depth chart, even getting a few snaps with the starting offense in Sunday's practice.
One unique aspect of Levenseller's status with WSU is his father, Mike, is the Cougars' longtime receivers coach.
How is everyone handling the younger Levenseller's decision?
"It's OK," Wulff said. "You know, I think he's a great kid. He's a really good football player. He's going to help somebody."
