Michael Eubank, backup quarterback for the Arizona State Sun Devils, has announced he will be transferring from ASU.

From the Associated Press,

Coach Todd Graham said after practice Friday that he will help Eubank in the search for a new team.


The 6-foot-6, 246-pound quarterback was used mostly in short-yardage situations by the Sun Devils, including a notable failure on a goal-line sneak in the Pac-12 championship game against Stanford.


This season, Eubank completed 4 of 5 passes for 70 yards and ran 13 times for 20 yards and three touchdowns. He has two years of eligibility remaining and would have to sit out a season if he transfers to an FBS school.

Due to NCAA rules, if Eubank transfers to another FBS school, he will have to miss one of his two years of eligibility while sitting on the bench. However, if he doesn’t transfer to a FBS school, he is free to play both years of his eligibility.

What do you think he will do? Will Eubank go to a FBS school and play one year? Or will he want to play two full seasons and take his talents somewhere else?
