North Carolina State Quarterback Pete Thomas to Transfer Again

North Carolina State quarterback Pete Thomas is on the move again, stating he will transfer to another school after he graduates in May, according to ESPN.

Thomas had originally transferred to NC State from Colorado State in 2011, where he had started 21 games in 2 years. Thomas sat out 2012 as an obligatory redshirt year.

The change didn’t quite go according to plan as fellow transfer, Brandon Mitchell (from Arkansas), started the season. Thomas did start 6 games, playing in 9, while Mitchell was injured, but threw for just 1667 yards and 4 TDs, with 9 interceptions.

With another transfer, Jacoby Brissett of Florida, getting the starting nod from head coach Dave Doeren already, Thomas has decided to move to another school where he could get the opportunity to start for his final season. He will not be required to take a redshirt, as he will have graduated.

Thomas has not declared his new destination, but has expressed interest in Vanderbilt in the past. Over the course of his career, Thomas completed 62.6% of his passes for 5936 yards, 22 TDs and 30 interceptions, while adding 5 further scores on the ground.
