OSU football notebook: Ex-Miami QB looking at Cowboys

Oklahoman Published: January 12, 2009
Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy paid a visit to former Miami, Fla., quarterback Robert Marve last week, according to a report in the Miami Herald.

The report said Marve, who was released from his scholarship at Miami late last month, is considering the Cowboys and Purdue, among others.

Marve, 6-foot-1, 210 pounds, played in 11 of the Hurricanes’ 13 games in his redshirt freshman season in 2008, before being benched in favor of Jacory Harris. Marve threw for 1,293 yards on 116-of-213 passing (54.5 percent) with nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

He’s more of a pro-style quarterback than Gundy typically targets, rushing 59 times for 119 yards last season.

Marve originally chose Miami over Alabama, when he came out of Plant High School in Tampa, Fla., where as a senior, he broke the Florida state single-season records for passing yards (4,380) and touchdowns (48), both previously held by Florida’s Tim Tebow.

If he transferred to OSU, Marve would have to sit out the 2009 season and would then have two years of eligibility remaining.

When he orally committed to Oklahoma State in November, fullback David Paulsen discussed his long-time love for Georgia Bulldog football.
