Pyne spent last season with the Sun Devils. He played in two games and threw for 273 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions while injuries kept him out of more competition.

Pyne served a successful role as starter for Notre Dame in 2022. The Fighting Irish went 8-2 in games he started, and the New Canaan, Connecticut, native threw for 2,021 yards, 22 touchdowns and six interceptions.

According to ESPN, the “likely scenario” in 2024 will be Pyne backing up Brady Cook, who has started at Missouri the past two years. Then, Pyne will have two seasons of eligibility remaining beginning with 2025 when he’ll likely compete for the starting role with the Tigers.

He’s currently enrolled back at Notre Dame to graduate this spring, according to ESPN.

Pyne was a four-star recruit by most recruiting outlets as part of the class of 2020. He was a two-time state champion.
