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).
