The Florida Atlantic quarterback competition just got a bit more interesting.

On Tuesday, the school announced former SMU quarterback Rafe Peavey had transferred to FAU. A graduate student, he was immediately eligible and practiced for the first time Tuesday.

a€œHea€™s someone that has played before at Arkansas and SMU, a good player out of high school,a€ Owls coach Lane Kiffin said. a€œTo add someone this late, we obviously researched a very smart kid that can pick things up. Wea€™re always trying to strengthen our team and strengthen our position group.a€

Kiffin said the move was made because he felt uncomfortable about having just two experienced quarterbacks on the roster. Junior Dea€™Andre Johnson and freshman Chris Robison are competing for the starting spot, but Kiffin did not rule out Peavey factoring into the mix.

Peavey, who was a four-star recruit coming out of high school, played one season at Arkansas in 2015 before transferring to SMU. Last year, he completed 4 of 4 passes for 72 yards and a touchdown as a backup.

Kiffin said he added another quarterback to help offset the loss of Jason Driskel, who started most of last season before deciding to quit football after the bowl victory against Akron.
