ANN ARBOR -- The quarterback position at Michigan just got a little bit deeper on Thursday, as does the competition for starter.

What was once a worst-kept secret, Michigan formally announced the addition of graduate transfer Jake Rudock from Iowa. According to NCAA transfer rules, Rudock will be able to play his last year of eligibility immediately for the Wolverines.

"I am excited for Jake to get here and compete with the quarterbacks that we already have in the program," said passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch in a statement. "I've known Jake for a long time, since 2011, and I am excited to be a part of the staff that is now coaching him.

Rudock threw for 2,436-yards, 16 touchdowns and five interceptions for Iowa last season. In addition, he also ranked second in the Big Ten in completion percentage (61.7%). Rudock ends his Hawkeye career with a 15-10 overall record as a starter.

"I think that Jake brings great maturity and experience to the program," said Fisch. "He has 25 starts under his belt in the Big Ten and a winning record of 15-10. All of that, combined with the quarterbacks we currently have in the program and all the skill we are surrounding him with, we are excited about the things that Jake can do for our program."
