STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) Mississippi State has added Penn State transfer quarterback Tommy Stevens to its football team.

The 6-foot-5, 240-pound Stevens was Trace McSorley's backup on the Nittany Lions. He has thrown for 304 yards and four touchdowns over 23 career games while also running for 506 yards and eight touchdowns.

Mississippi State confirmed Stevens' signing on Friday.

Stevens is a graduate transfer who has one season of eligibility remaining. He'll likely compete for the starting job against Keytaon Thompson, who was Nick Fitzgerald's backup last season.

Thompson played in nine games last season, throwing for 458 yards and six touchdowns.

Stevens will be reunited with Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead, who was the offensive coordinator at Penn State for two seasons before coming to Starkville in 2017.
