UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Two months before the start of preseason football practice, sophomore quarterback Rob Bolden remains uncertain if he will return to Penn State or transfer to another school.

"No, I still haven't [decided anything]," Bolden said when reached by telephone late Thursday. He declined to elaborate.

Bolden and redshirt junior Matt McGloin, a former walk-on, split snaps as the No. 1 quarterback in spring practice, and coach Joe Paterno said he might not decide on a starter until the fall.

Bolden has been indecisive about his future since the end of last season.

He and his father, Robert, met Jan. 4 with Paterno and his son, Jay, the team's quarterbacks coach, but the elder Paterno denied Bolden's request to be released from his scholarship so he could transfer.

Bolden started the first seven games and eight games overall last season . He completed 112 of 193 passes for 1,360 yards, with five touchdown passes and seven interceptions.

But he suffered a concussion Oct. 23 against Minnesota, and McGloin started five of the final six games.

McGloin completed 118 of 215 passes for 1,548 yards. He threw 14 touchdown passes and nine interceptions, including a school-record five in the Outback Bowl loss to Florida on New Year's Day.
