Gabbert finds a home at Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville coach Charlie Strong said former Missouri quarterback Tyler Gabbert is now a member of his football team.

Strong tweeted he is “excited to have Tyler Gabbert officially join our football program.” Louisville spokesman Rocco Gasparro said Thursday that Gabbert will be eligible in 2012 and have three years of eligibility remaining.

Missouri announced earlier Gabbert had decided to transfer. He is the younger brother of former Tigers quarterback Blaine Gabbert, the No. 10 pick in this year’s NFL draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The 6-0, 190-pound Tyler Gabbert was a redshirt freshman competing to replace his older brother as Missouri’s starting quarterback. He initially committed to Nebraska before switching to Missouri.
