               === Reports: Rutgers lands Minnesota QB Nelson ===
 
 (SportsNetwork.com)  -  Quarterback  Philip  Nelson is  leaving  one  Big  Ten
 program for another.
 
 Nelson  will transfer  from Minnesota to Rutgers, according to several reports
 Wednesday.
 
 The  quarterback  had announced  Jan. 16  that he would  transfer, saying in a
 statement he was looking for a system that centers more on the passing game.
 
 Rutgers  coach Kyle Flood tweeted Wednesday that there was a "New MN addition"
 to the team.
 
 In  18  games for  the Golden  Gophers, Nelson  passed for  2,179 yards and 17
 touchdowns. He rushed for 548 yards and six touchdowns.
 
 The  6-foot-2, 215-pound  sophomore will sit out a year due to transfer rules,
 but  won't lose  a year  of eligibility  under Big  Ten rules  because Rutgers
 doesn't become a member of the conference until later this year.
