Bulldogs grant QB Carroll a release

After leading Mississippi State to a Liberty Bowl victory as a freshman in 2007, things appear to be over for quarterback Wesley Carroll.

At least in Starkville.

The 6-foot-1, 194-pound sophomore from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., has been granted a release from his scholarship to the university.

Carroll played in 20 games during his Bulldog career, earning 14 starts. He completed 189-of-370 passing for 1,952 yards, 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

Carroll was 7-6 as a starter.

Carroll started the first four games for MSU this season with only a 1-3 record. After losing his starting job to Tyson Lee before the LSU game, Carroll only appeared in three more games.

He finished the 2008 campaign 55-of-115 passing for 560 yards, three touchdowns and seven interceptions.

With Carroll being granted a release, he is allowed to market himself to other programs and could possibly return to his native state at Florida International.

If Carroll does decide to transfer elsewhere, it will leave only Lee, Chris Relf and walk-on Todd Kilpatrick left on the roster.

The Bulldogs do have two three-star quarterbacks committed for the 2009 class in Tyler Russell and Josh Hollingsworth.
