Michigan QB Threet transferring to ASU

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Former Michigan quarterback Steven Threet plans to transfer to Arizona State.

That's according to a person familiar with Threet's decision who requested anonymity because the details are still being worked out.

The 6-foot-6 Threet would sit out the 2009 season and have two years of eligibility remaining.

Threet started his college career at Georgia Tech before transferring to Michigan. A pocket passer who was recruited by former Wolverines coach Lloyd Carr, Threet seemed a poor fit with Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez's offense, which favors mobile quarterbacks.

Threet started eight games as a redshirt freshman last year, passing for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns with seven interceptions. ESPN.com first reported Threet's decision.
