Tyler Brosius has left the North Carolina State football program after two years as a backup quarterback. A redshirt sophomore, Brosius, who was a two-sports star at Tuscola High, will instead resume his baseball career at Walters

State Community College in Tennesse with the hopes of entering the 2013 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.
As a high school senior, Brosius established the Western North Carolina record for all-time passing (7,895) yards, and he batted .447 with 13 home runs and 51 runs-batted-in as a third baseman, pitcher and outfielder his senior year.
Brosius will be eligible to play baseball right away at Walters State and free to sign with any MLB team or another college following the 2013 season. Walters State does not have a football team, but Brosius hasn't ruled out a possible return to football.
Mars Hill College (a Division II school and a member of the South Atlantic Conference) and Appalachian State are among the schools, which have already expressed interest in signing Brosius; the Mountaineers have offered him the chance to play two sports.
