Vanderbilt has bolstered its depth at quarterback, announcing the transfer of former LSU quarterback Stephen Rivers.

Rivers, 6-6, 230, has two years of eligibility remaining.

He completed an undergraduate degree at LSU in May, was granted the waiver to join Vanderbilt late Tuesday by the Southeastern Conference. He will enter postgraduate studies in Vanderbilt’s Divinity School this summer.

After going through spring drills with just two quarterbacks — Patton Robinette and Johnny McCrary — the Commodores could have six prospects when camp opens, adding Rivers, Josh Grady and incoming freshmen Wade Freebeck and Shawn Stankavage.

“I’m happy for Stephen and looking forward to having him join our program,” coach Derek Mason said in a statement. “Stephen brings both ability and experience to our team, and he fits the offensive system we will run under (offensive coordinator) Karl Dorrell.
