Louisville coach Charlie Strong says former Missouri quarterback Tyler Gabbert is now a member of his football team.
Strong tweeted that 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 this week that 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.
