ANN ARBOR -- The quarterback depth for Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan football program appears to be growing once again.

Iowa quarterback Jake Rudock, who's waiver was cleared by the Big Ten on Wednesday, will transfer to Michigan and be immediately eligible to play for his final year of eligibility. The news and confirmation of his transfer was first reported by The Wolverine's Chris Balas on Twitter.

Rudock finished the 2014 season, where the Hawkeyes finished 7-6 overall, with over 2,400-yards passing, 16 touchdown passes and only five interceptions.

He will join a Wolverine depth chart being the quarterback that has the most game experience by a wide margin. With two true freshman on roster (Alex Malzone and Zach Gentry), a redshirt freshman (Wilton Speight) and a junior (Shane Morris) not having thrown a collegiate touchdown pass.
