Former N.C. State QB Pete Thomas Transferring to UL-Monroe


Pete Thomas will have one final stop in his whirlwind college football career.

Thomas, who started six games for N.C. State last season, has decided that he will transfer to the University of Louisiana-Monroe to play his final year of eligibility.

Thomas will graduate in May from N.C. State and will eligible to play immediately for the Warhawks next season.

Thomas spent his first two seasons at Colorado State, where he started 21 games during the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

Coach Dave Doeren of N.C. State announced that Florida transfer Jacoby Brissett would be the Wolfpack’s starter next season, and the team is bringing in incoming freshman Jalan McClendon, leaving little opportunity for Thomas to crack the starting lineup.

Thomas completed 149 of 247 passes last season for 1,667 yards with four touchdowns and nine interceptions.

He finished the season ranked ninth in the ACC in passing yards per game (185.2) and in total offense (203.3).
