Pete Thomas Transfer: North Carolina State Picks Up Former Colorado State QB

Former Colorado St. Rams quarterback Pete Thomas has decided to transfer to the N.C. State Wolfpack a week after being granted his release from the university, reports Kelly Lyell the Coloradoan. Thomas texted notice of this move on Wednesday night and mentioned that he will start classes there this fall.

Thomas lost playing time at the end of the season due to injury and then the emergence of Garrett Grayson in Steve Fairchild's failed attempt to keep his job. Fairchild was fired and Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain was brought in, prompting Thomas to reevaluate his career.

Early reports had Thomas looking at the Vanderbilt Commodores, but Thomas said he hadn't decided and was looking at all of his options. At North Carolina State, Thomas will need to sit out this fall due to NCAA transfer regulations, but he will have two years remaining starting in 2013. The Wolfpack lost Russell Wilson last season and Sean Glennon this season (he graduates while Wilson transferred to Wisconsin).

Peter Thomas Transfer: Former Colorado State QB Eyeing UCLA, N.C. State, According To Report

While he has been released from his Colorado St. Rams football scholarship, Pete Thomas' future destination is still unknown. While early reports had him heading to the Vanderbilt Commodores, that may no longer be the case. According to his quarterback coach, Thomas is looking to go farther east to the N.C. State Wolfpack or out west to the UCLA Bruins.

Bruins Nation, our UCLA blog, would greatly want to add Thomas to a quarterback situation that doesn't have a lot of depth to it. New coach Jim Mora could use a pick up like Thomas, who is a native of California. North Carolina State recruited Thomas while he was in high school.

Pete Thomas Transfer: Colorado State QB Withdraws From School

The Colorado St. Rams have officially announced that quarterback Pete Thomas has withdrawn from school a week after news broke that he was considering a transfer. New Colorado State athletic director Jack Graham announced the withdrawal on Tuesday:

"We appreciate all that Pete gave to Colorado State University during his two years with us, and we wish him the best," said Graham.

According to the school's release, Thomas has been released from his scholarship and is "free to pursue other opportunities." That makes it sound as though Thomas has no limitations on where he can transfer to. The Vanderbilt Commodores had been rumored to be his destination when this news first broke last week. Thomas, at the time, said he was exploring his options.

New head coach Jim McElwain is now likely to go with Garrett Grayson, who had supplanted Thomas at the end of last season when Steve Fairchild was attempting to keep his job as head coach.
