It appears Jim Harbaugh has found his quarterback — for at least one year, anyway.

First reported by Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman, Iowa junior quarterback Jake Rudock was granted a transfer waiver by the Big Ten Wednesday and is eligible to play immediately this fall. According to Feldman,'s Joe Schad and others, the place Rudock intends to play is the University of Michigan.

Rudock completed 213-of-345 passes for 2,436 yards, 16 touchdowns and five interceptions last season with the Hawkeyes. Iowa finished the year 7-6 and lost to Tennessee in the Outback Bowl, 45-28. Rudock only threw eight passes in that game, completing two of them, before yielding to sophomore C.J. Beathard.

Rudock joins Michigan with more game experience than any other quarterback currently on roster. True freshmen Alex Malzone and Zach Gentry, redshirt freshman Wilton Speight and junior Shane Morris have never thrown a collegiate touchdown pass.
