Florida Atlantic adds SMU QB transfer Rafe Peavy


Recommended Posts

BOCA RATON — After months of searching, Lane Kiffin has finally found his graduate transfer quarterback.

Former Arkansas and SMU quarterback Rafe Peavey has officially joined the Owls as a grad transfer and is immediately eligible to play. Peavey was cleared shortly before Tuesday’s practice and took reps with the first, second, and third-teams.

“We’re always looking for people,” Kiffin said, “and we had looked for a while for the right fit of a quarterback due to numbers once Jason (Driskel) left.”

Peavey, 22, was a perfect four-of-four for 116 yards and a touchdown in three games last season. A former three-star recruit from Missouri, Peavey transferred to SMU in 2016 and mainly served as Ben Hicks’ backup last season.

Redshirt junior De’Andre Johnson is currently battling redshirt freshman Chris Robison for the starting quarterback job. Kiffin said the addition of Peavey is “not any reflection upon” Johnson and Robison’s performances.

Seems like they might've lost something at qb if they're looking at grad transfers.

Good for Rafe. He was stuck behind a RS Junior who already set Career TD and Season TD/Yardage records at SMU. He was not going to be starting or playing much because the garbage time reps will go to the RS Freshman QB or the Freshman QB with 4 games free to play and keep his RS.
