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. Coincidentally, the Sooners play Miami at Dolphin Stadium on Oct. 3 next season.
IGLESIAS SHINES AT SENIOR BOWLHis team lost, but OU wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias showed why he’s an attractive pro prospect during Saturday’s Senior Bowl. Iglesias led the North offense with six catches for 90 yards, including a 41-yard grab. Iglesias also reportedly had an impressive week of practice leading up to the game displaying soft hands and the ability to make people miss after the catch. "Iglesias positively answered the question about his ability to play in a disciplined pro-style offense versus the wide open spread system at Oklahoma, which made him so productive,” wrote Tony Pauline of Sports Illustrated. "He displayed consistent hands all week and now ranks below only (Penn State’s) Derrick Williams on the list of senior receivers available this April.”
