Miami transfer Robert Marve is considering Oklahoma State (coach Mike Gundy visited last week) and Purdue, among others.
How does Marve fit in to the scheme Gundy runs at Okie State? He seems like a pretty good athlete to me, but I'm not recalling his accuracy/arm strength. I know OSU isn't a real vertical team, but isn't Marve more of a runner than thrower?
According to college scouts he has great arm strength and great quick release. He does run, but he was a great passer as well in high school and scouts projected him as a very good passer in college. He threw for over 4,300 yards his senior year in high school, which broke Tebow's record, but Aaron Murray (UGA Commit and kid who followed Marve after he left Plant HS) broke that record. He supposedly has all the physical tools to play in that system. Mentally no one is sure.
-- as an aside, I talked with some of my friends that either played against him in HS or are close with guys who did (we all played each other in HS here in Tampa) and they all said he survived in high school on his athleticism and they didn't think he could handle college when everyone else was good as well. Not sure if this will be true, but I haven't seen anything to show me different yet.
