The Associated Press reported that former Miami quarterback Robert Marve made his final decision Thursday: he’s heading to Purdue to continue his college football career.

Marve, who showed interest in USF, was torn between Tennessee and Purdue in the final stages of his decision making process.

Marve attended a USF scrimmage during spring practices and chatted with coach Jim Leavitt and offensive coordinator Mike Canales afterward. His father said he was impressed with USF’s coaching staff and facilities.

Marve will be eligible in 2010.

It shouldn’t be too much of a letdown for the Bulls after freshman backups Evan Landi and B.J. Daniels impressed during the spring game. Of course, Matt Grothe will be returning for his senior season as well.
