UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- As spring drills wind down, Penn State's biggest question mark remains the future of sophomore quarterback Rob Bolden.

Bolden's mother told The Post-Gazette today she is uncertain whether her son will remain with the Nittany Lions' program after this semester or transfer to another Division I school.

"I'm not sure what he's going to do," Tonia Williams said from her home in suburban Detroit. "Our last conversation, he didn't say if he was staying or if he was leaving.

"He's a grown man now. He's able to make his own decisions. The ball is in his court."

Bolden has been competing for the starting job this spring with former walk-on Matt McGloin, a redshirt junior. The Lions will practice later today for the final time in advance of Saturday's Blue-White Game at Beaver Stadium.

Earlier today, wide receiver Derek Moye said he believed Bolden would remain at Penn State.

Bolden lost his job to McGloin last season after suffering a concussion. Bolden sought to be released from his scholarship in January in order to transfer, but coach Joe Paterno denied that request.

"[Rob's] performing really well and I think he's given himself a good opportunity to compete for the job and start this year," Moye said. "I don't really see any reason for him to leave."
