Tate Forcier Withdraws From San Jose State

The saga of erstwhile Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier took another turn on Monday, when Forcier withdrew from San Jose State, where he transferred in the summer of 2010.

Forcier, who led Michigan to a 4-0 start in 2009, has been the subject of all manner of transfer rumors since being supplanted as the Wolverines' starting quarterback by Denard Robinson before the 2010 season. Early in 2011, after being ruled academically ineligible to play for Michigan in the 2011 Gator Bowl, Forcier announced his decision to transfer from Michigan via Twitter, and considered schools like Washington and Kansas State before eventually deciding to transfer to Miami in February.

However, Forcier never made it to Coral Gables, instead deciding to continue looking for another school, and considered Hawai'i before ultimately choosing to transfer to San Jose State.

Forcier's departure was related to academics, according to John Wilner of the San Jose Mercury-News, and leaves San Jose State with a largely unproven pack of quarterbacks behind him.


Tate Forcier Reportedly Transfers To Miami, Describes Al Golden In Classic QB Force Fashion

Tate Forcier enjoyed his Wednesday visit to the Miami Hurricanes so much that he’s already signed papers to transfer to South Beach, according to Bruce Feldman. After seeing campus, Forcier described his experience to Joe Schad in the most QB FORCE of terms.

Forcier to Schad:

I really want to be a part of the rebirth at Miami. There is so much positive energy around this program.

Isn’t that so QB FORCE? The pairing of Forcier with Al Golden, a man whose biggest claim to fame so far is a vintage workout video, seems too excellent to be true, so let’s contain ourselves for a moment. The former Michigan QB had recently narrowed his list of potential transfer schools to Miami, Kansas State, Washington, Arizona, and Montana, with the Canes visit coming first, but it looks like love at first sight.

The Canes should be happy to have another arm on board, with Stephen Morris unproven and Jacory Harris proven in the wrong way. For Forcier to cut his tour short to sign with Miami would be a nice boost for a Miami offseason that hasn’t endured the smoothest of transition periods.
