FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Former Duke quarterback Brandon Connette is transferring to Fresno State and will be eligible to play this upcoming season.

Fresno State coach Tim DeRuyter said Friday that Connette has signed a scholarship agreement. Connette graduated with a degree in economics from Duke last December, making him eligible to transfer without having to sit out a season.

DeRuyter said Connette will compete to replace the departed Derek Carr as the starting quarterback on the Bulldogs. Brian Burrell, Myles Carr and Zack Greenlee took most of the work with the first team in spring ball.

Connette played in 39 career games at Duke, drawing four starts. He completed 106 of 182 passes for 1,410 yards with 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also ran for 31 scores at Duke.
