The Publisher for 247Sports' Panther247 Karlo Zovko tweeted that former Pitt quarterback Trey Anderson may enroll at UTEP after transferring from Pitt.

Anderson is from Pearland, Texas, and has seen minimal action in his Pitt career as a backup quarterback.  Appearing in eight games in his Pitt career, Anderson has thrown three career interceptions and is 25/43 for 263 yards and a touchdown as a collegiate.

Coming out of Pearland, he originally walked on at Pitt then earned a scholarship right before the season opener, appearing in four games as a true freshman.

The 6'0 195 pound quarterback had the most prolific season as senior and overall passing career in Pearland High School history.  During his senior year he threw for 2,898 yards and 24 touchdowns with only three interceptions en-route to a Texas 5A Division I State Title in 2010 where this play made him and his team a viral sensation.

Anderson was a red-shirt junior this season appearing in three games and has one year of eligibility left.  He tweeted that he is leaving Pitt, though did not announce a destination.  With his potential out of high school and evident growth early in his college career, Pitt's weird reasoning for not giving him a full shot maybe UTEP's gain in the 2015 quarterback competition.

At this point nothing has been confirmed from any UTEP sources, though obviously the biggest question for the 2015 Miners is under center and a need for someone to emerge in the spring.

For Anderson to be immediately eligible he would have to enroll at UTEP as a grad student.

We will continue to gather information and try to confirm further, meanwhile here some clips from high school days.
