Former Colorado State QB Pete Thomas Transfers To North Carolina State

Former Colorado St. Rams quarterback Pete Thomas has made his decision to transfer to the East coast and will become a member of the N.C. State Wolfpack, this according to Kelly Lyell of the Coloradoan. Thomas said that he needed a change.

Thomas will enroll in the fall which will allow him to take part in spring practice and summer workouts, but he will have to sit out the 2012 season due to transfer rules which will leave him with two years of eligibility left. The move to N.C. State came out of nowhere as the Vanderbilt Commodores were supposedly his school of choice.

Thomas met with new head coach Jim McElwain several times to discuss his future, but Thomas mentioned that he was real close with former head coach Steve Fairchild.

The quarterback position is now handed over to Garrett Grayson who took over late in the 2011 season for Thomas who suffered a knee injury.
