"It felt right," Forcier said. "I loved the coaches and felt comfortable with them. I really believe I can help that team and I'm going to do everything I possibly can to help them."
After leaving the University of Michigan, Forcier originally planned to transfer to Miami (FL). Those plans fell through, however, and Forcier had been on the search for a new school for the last two months. Auburn was once mentioned as a possibility, as was Montana, San Diego State and Hawaii. In the end, Forcier decided to become a Spartan -- a San Jose State Spartan, that is.
Forcier will have to sit out the 2011 season as part of transferring. He will be able to play starting in 2012 and will have two years of eligibility left.
