In an expected move, quarterback Blaire Sullivan announced in a tweet that he is transfering to Texas State to finish the final two years of his career.
The starter by the end of last season, the sophomore began this season as UTEP's back-up quarterback and took over as the starter when Jameill Showers got hurt. After throwing four interceptions in seven quarters he was demoted to third team, but did rush for 104 yards in a Wildcat capacity against Florida International and did play some running the option in the final two games.
As a transfer to an FCS school, Sullivan won't have to sit out a season.
This year Sullivan was 15-of-26 passing for 183 yards with four interceptions and one touchdown, and had 172 yards on 35 rushes. His career numers are 36-of-69 passing for 573 yards with five interceptions and three touchdowns, plus 412 rushing yards on 224 carries.
