Steven Threet finally gets the stage

Threet named ASU's starter

ASU’s Steven Threet will take the field as starting quarterback for the first time in nearly two years when Arizona State opens their season against Portland State this Saturday. Threet has been somewhat of a gypsy throughout his collegiate football career. The 6’4, 240 lb., redshirt junior has played for three division 1 programs since graduating high school in 2006. He originally committed and enrolled at Georgia Tech before transferring to Michigan. Threet started in eight games for the Wolverines in 2008 but was less than impressive in the games he played in.

Threet decided to transfer to Arizona State after current Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez was hired. Rodriguez’s preference of dual-threat quarterbacks to run his spread offense was ultimately the deal breaker for Threat, a pr0-style QB. After sitting out last season, per NCAA transfer rules, Threet was just named the starter for the Sun Devils for the 2010 college football season. How long he remains the starter is yet to be known, but congrats to him for finally being able to secure a starting spot, and for getting back on the field.
