Ex-Nevada, Boise State QB Kaiden Bennett transfers to FCS school


It didn’t take one Nevada transfer long to find his new college football home.  Which will actually be his third college football home.

In August of last year, Kaiden Bennett opted to leave Boise State.  Not long after, Bennett joined the Nevada football team.  Less than a year later, the quarterback opted to leave the Wolf Pack as well.

This week, it was reported that Bennett had decided to transfer to Sacramento State.  Bennett’s father subsequently confirmed his son was moving on to the FCS school.

“I am so grateful for Kaiden’s support during my tough times fighting cancer,” Derek Bennett told NevadaSportsNet. “He put family first when leaving Boise, even gave up a scholarship to be here for his family. Our family is extremely grateful for the time he spent at Nevada. Excited for him and his new start.”

The elder Bennett’s battle with cancer is what triggered the player’s initial transfer.  After leaving Boise State, Kaiden Bennett considered both Nevada and Sacramento State football before opting for the Wolf Pack.

Bennett was a three-star 2019 signee coming out of high school in California.  He didn’t see the field at all this past season, using his redshirt year in the process.

At Sacramento State, Bennett will be eligible to play immediately.  All told, Bennett has four years of eligibility to use.
