Big East lunchtime links

Three links today, all quarterback related:

• Pitt quarterback Kevan Smith has left the team and will instead play baseball for the Panthers. The sophomore, who played five games in 2007, was fourth on the depth chart behind Bill Stull, Pat Bostick and Tino Sunseri and had been asked to switch to another position this spring.

"I think my opportunity with football is dead right now, unless there is some kind of miracle," Smith told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Kevin Gorman.

• Former Miami quarterback Robert Marve is strongly considering four schools, including South Florida, Brett McMurphy reports in the Tampa Tribune. But Marve likely won't make a decision on where to transfer until after signing day.

• And finally, after his MVP performance at quarterback in the Senior Bowl, former West Virginia star Pat White is confident he can make it in the NFL at that position. He'd love to give it a try with his favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
