Chris Low is reporting that Robert has considered a move to UT. It was previously reported that Marve would take a scholarship to play at the University of Purdue.
Marve loved the Purdue coaches during his visit and the chance to compete for the starting position in 2010. He came close to finalizing a decision to play for the Boilermakers last week. But he also long has been intrigued by the Vols.
I'm sure Kiffin and Co. had no problem pitching him the chance to compete for the job in 2010. Which would likely be his for the taking, considering the lack of depth at the position.
Miami won't release Marve to Tennessee, Florida or LSU in the Southeastern Conference because it believes tampering occurred prior to his departure from the Hurricanes.
Marve is struggling with the choice, because he would have a chance to compete for the Volunteers' starting quarterback position in 2010, but would have to pay for school at Tennessee in 2009.
Sounds like the only real road block is Miami's tampering claim stated above. Hypothetically, could he earn a scholarship after he's walked on?
Marve's father, Eugene, said the choice was down to two teams, but would not name the two. He added that a decision likely won't be made until Friday or next week.
"There's a team that was thrown in, that we started investigating late and trying to get that information and put it against all the factors," Eugene Marve said.
Could Tennessee be making another late push at another player formerly from the state of Florida? I'm intrigued.
