Pac-12: Robert Marve

Report: Threet to transfer to Arizona State

ESPN's Joe Schad is reporting that Michigan sophomore quarterback Steven Threet is transferring to Arizona State.

Threet apparently has picked the Sun Devils over Oregon State.

If he suits up for ASU -- he'll have to sit out a year, per NCAA transfer rules, and will have two remaining years of eligibility -- this will be Threet's third BCS school, having previously enrolled at Georgia Tech and Michigan.

Threet will now play in his desired pro-style offense for the first time. He started eight games for the Wolverines, who adopted a spread offense last year. He completed just over 50 percent of his passes for 1,105 yards, with nine touchdowns and seven interceptions, and he rushed for 201 yards.

Senior Danny Sullivan is ASU's likely starting quarterback. Threet would compete with freshman Brock Osweiler and sophomore Samson Szakacsy in 2010.

Former Miami quarterback Robert Marve also considered Arizona State, but he appears headed to Purdue.

Life is too short, and the time we waste in yawning never can be regained.

  • Quarterback Danny Sullivan can win over Arizona State fans Saturday during the Sun Devils spring game.
  • Quarterback Robert Marve, who is transferring from Miami, plans to visit Nebraska, Texas Tech and Arizona State. He's also considering South Florida and Purdue, and has dropped UCLA from his list. Marve would sit out the 2009 season and has two years of eligibility remaining.
  • Revisiting issues with Oregon's media policies -- it was mostly a misunderstanding. Hey, look, can't we all just get a long? Yes, we can! Now, to the campfire for a round of "Kum Ba Ya".
  • Oregon State will scrimmage Friday, so the new-look secondary will be on display.
  • UCLA tailback Johnathan Franklin is moving up the depth chart. Freshman tight end Morrell Presley is living up to expectations.
  • Got a couple of grumpy emails from Auburn fans about saying the Tigers "chickened out" of a 2010 game with UCLA. Well, here's an Auburn perspective to consider.
  • It appears Aaron Corp is responding to Matt Barkley's challenge for the USC quarterback job. Competition is also hot on the defensive line. Sophomore cornerback T.J. Bryant is asserting himself.
  • Jon Wilner considers the Pac-10 and the NFL draft.

Some of these links are nice. Others are naughty. I prefer the naughty ones, but you may be concerned about Santa repercussions.

  • What's the price tag on Arizona's first bowl game since 1998? Let's just say it ain't cheap. Is Mike Stoops a candidate for the Iowa State job? And does that mean he should get a raise from Arizona? It might help if the Wildcats prove they can win a close game.
  • Four signees will get an early start at Arizona State and will participate in spring practices.
  • California won't face Miami's starting quarterback, who was suspended from the Emerald Bowl. But Robert Marve had been splitting time with backup Jacory Harris anyway. This Cal notebook has some interesting items, including news on a recruit snagged from Washington.
  • Taking a look at Oregon's Holiday Bowl foe, Oklahoma State. And is a talented freshman thinking about transferring?
  • Guess who's doing the Sun Bowl halftime show ... a bunch of macho men!
  • USC injury update.
  • Follow the rumors surrounding potential new Washington assistant coaches under Steve Sarkisian.
  • A look at the Pac-10 bowl season.
