Ex-CSU QB headed to North Carolina State

When Colorado State announced that Pete Thomas was transferring from the football program, it was widely assumed the quarterback would ultimately land at Vanderbilt.

As it turns out, he’s headed a little bit further east to continue his collegiate career.

According to CBS‘s Bruce Feldman, Thomas has decided to transfer to North Carolina State.  As of yet, there’s been no confirmation from the Wolfpack, although Feldman reports that Thomas will head to Raleigh this weekend to meet with coaches and take in the campus.

Due to NCAA transfer rules, Thomas, who also consider UCLA in addition to NCSU and Vandy will not be eligible to play until 2013.  Thomas will, though, be permitted to participate in spring practice.

He will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning next season.

When he does take the field, NCSU would be getting a very experienced player under center.  During his two years with the Rams, Thomas threw for nearly 4,300 yards and 18 touchdowns, although interceptions were an issue — he threw 21 in just 414 attempts.  A four-star member of CSU’s 2010 recruiting class, Thomas was rated as the No. 16 pro-style QB in the country.

Thomas started 21 straight games beginning as a true freshman in 2010 before a knee injury ended both the streak and his 2011 season.

    Started 21 straight games as a freshman. That’s an amazing stat. I thought they could only play 12-13 games a year.

    @thefiesty1: I’m thinking I forgot the word “beginning” in there somewhere. Helluva feat on his part as written, though.

    @ John Taylor and @thefiesty1: Mr. Taylor, if you edited it to add “beginning “, you might clarify that it was an edit. Otherwise, when I read it at 2:50, 8 minutes after your comment, it was already there. I think usually posts on this site say “Last update [date and time]” when the author has edited their original entry.

    @LogicalConsideration; Grammatical errors or typos have not been handled in that manner in the past and never will be in the future. Thanks for your concern, though, and hopefully you can get past this disturbing development.
