Roderick returns to Bozeman
Tanner Roderick, who led Bozeman High to state football and basketball championships as a senior, is transferring from Nevada to Montana State to play football.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports Roderick has three years of eligibility remaining after two seasons at Nevada, including a redshirt year.
Roderick says he'll play wide receiver this fall and compete for the quarterback spot after DeNarius McGhee graduates. Roderick played wide receiver as a sophomore in high school.
Roderick was officially released from his scholarship at Nevada on Friday (January 11th). Roderick reportedly visited the office of University of Montana Head Coach Mick Delaney on Friday before announcing late Sunday that he had committed to Montana State.
He passed for 2,457 yards and 28 touchdowns and rushed for 1,913 yards and 23 more scores as a senior, helping Bozeman to a 13-0 record and the 2010 state Class AA championship. He averaged 19 points per game as Bozeman posted a 22-1 record and won the Class AA state basketball title for the 2010-11 season.
Classes and winter football workouts start Wednesday at MSU.
Roderick's father, Steve, also played football for the Bobcats.
