Tom Savage, once the quarterback of the future at Rutgers, will complete his college career somewhere else.
The University announced Saturday that Savage, a sophomore, and freshman running back Casey Turner have been granted conditional releases.
“I thought about it with my family and we just thought it was the best decision for me,” Savage told ScarletNation.com. “It is just a fresh start somewhere else.”
