Former Texas Tech quarterback Tyler Shough plans to transfer to Louisville, he told ESPN's Pete Thamel.

The 24-year-old is set to play for his third school after beginning his collegiate career with Oregon in 2018. He transferred to Texas Tech ahead of the 2021 season.

Shough also garnered interest from North Carolina and UCF, according to 247 Sports' Matt Zenitz.

The Arizona native brings plenty of experience to the Cardinals' quarterback depth chart. During his three seasons in Oregon, Shough threw for 1,703 yards, 16 touchdowns, and six interceptions with a 64.8% completion rate. He joined the Red Raiders after his 2020 campaign.

His Texas Tech tenure was marred by injuries, though, and he was limited to just 15 games. Shough missed the final six contests of this season due to a broken fibula. He threw for 2,922 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions during his three campaigns with the program.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound signal-caller aims to make an impact under head coach Jeff Brohm in his seventh collegiate season, though he will likely pursue a medical hardship waiver after missing most of the last two seasons due to injury.

Senior Jack Plummer served as Louisville's starting quarterback this season, helping the program earn a berth in the ACC championship game. The Cardinals will close out the year in the Holiday Bowl against USC on Dec. 27.
