FRESNO, Calif. -- Fresno State has granted quarterback Marcus McDade permission to contact other schools about transferring.
The sophomore was competing to backup standout starter Derek Carr in the spring. Fresno State also has junior college transfer Brian Burrell, freshman Zack Greenlee and redshirt freshman Myles Carr at quarterback.
McDade, from Stockton, Calif., appeared in two games last season, running twice for 6 yards.
In a statement, Fresno State said McDade will not be allowed to transfer to another Mountain West conference school or a natural rival.
