Old Dominion starting quarterback Blake LaRussa to leave ODU for seminary school

Incumbent quarterback Blake LaRussa will not be on the roster once ODU opens their season against Norfolk State next August.

LaRussa is set to graduate early and transfer to a seminary school after leading the Monarchs to a win over Virginia Tech and starting eight games in 2018.

The 5’10” junior completed 63.4% of his passes this year for a total of 3,015 yards and 19 touchdowns. LaRussa played in 11 games this season, earning him Conference USA All-Conference honorable mention accolades.

LaRussa’s proficiency passing the ball helped elevate senior receivers Travis Fulgham and Jonathan Duhart into NFL draft prospects.
