East Tennessee State adds QB transfers Weldon, Thrasher
Because ETSU is a Football Championship Subdivision program, Weldon and Thrasher don't have to sit out a year before playing for their new team.
Weldon played four games for Miami in a reserve role last season after redshirting in 2017. He's the son of former Florida State quarterback Casey Weldon, the 1991 Heisman Trophy runner-up.
Thrasher played three games as a backup for Coastal Carolina last season. He completed his only two pass attempts for a total of 17 yards. He redshirted in 2016 and had a season-ending knee injury after playing two games in 2017.
