Bio: 
Three-year starter who leaves Penn as the school's all-time leader in passing touchdowns (52), completion percentage (65.1) and total offense (7,937 yards). A two-time First Team All-Ivy League selection who led Penn to a 2016 Ivy League Championship. Received an invite to the 2017 East-West Shrine Game. Finished his career with 627 completions on 963 attempts for 7,025 yards, 52 touchdowns and 18 interceptions.
Pos: 
Strong-armed pocket passer with the ability to make all the throws. Possesses a quick release, has a next-level arm and easily gets velocity on all his throws. Stands strong in the pocket, displays a sense of timing and anticipation and does not have receivers waiting on the ball. Effectively sells ball fakes, does a good job setting up screen throws and drives the deep outs. Consistently challenges in the vertical game.
Neg: 
Must improve his overall pass placement. At times too concerned with powering the ball into targets. Must learn to put air under throws. Not a true threat carrying the ball.
Analysis: 
Torgersen flew under the scouting radar for most of the season but was eventually invited to the Shrine Game and showed well during the week of practices. He possesses a next-level arm as well as solid size and should be given consideration on a practice squad this fall to further develop his talents.
