Former Penn State football quarterback Christian Veilleux is transferring to Georgia State

Former Penn State football quarterback Christian Veilleux has committed to transfer to Georgia State. he announced on Wednesday. Veilleux's commitment means he will play for his third program in his college career, after Penn State and Pitt.

“The next opportunity is the best opportunity! Let's get to work!” Veilleux wrote on social media.

The redshirt junior spent the first two seasons of his career at Penn State before transferring to Pitt last season. However, he regularly lost battles for the starting quarterback spot at every school.

The Ottawa, Canada native made his Penn State debut replacing Sean Clifford against Rutgers in 2021. He threw for 235 yards and three touchdowns while posting a 62.5% completion rate. He only appeared in four more games as a Nittany Lion.

Veilleux transferred to Pitt and played seven games last season. He threw for 1,461 yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions while posting a 53.4% ​​completion rate. His best performance of the season came at Wake Forest, when he rushed for a season-high 302 yards and two touchdowns while completing 62.2% of his passes.

Now the 6-foot-2, 220-pound Veilleux is headed to a Georgia State program that went 7-6 last season. The Panthers now have five quarterbacks in the room, including redshirt senior Zach Gibson, who transferred from Georgia Tech in January.
