Former University of Miami quarterback Robert Marve has been contacted by Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops and is now taking a look at transferring to OU, Marve’s father told the Miami Herald over the weekend.
Marve is also considering transferring to Oklahoma State, Purdue and South Florida, or less likely, paying his tuition at Tennessee or Florida, which is allowed, the Herald has reported. Marve is not expected to enroll at a new school this semester. 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 and completed 55 percent of his passes for nine touchdowns to 13 interceptions. Marve originally chose Miami over Alabama when he came out of Plant High School in Tampa, Fla., where as a senior, he broke the state single-season records for passing yards (4,380) and touchdowns (48), both previously held by Florida’s Tim Tebow. If he transferred to OU, Marve would have to sit out the 2009 season and then would have two years of eligibility left.
