QB Connor Brewer has decided to transfer to Arizona
Former Texas quarterback Connor Brewer has decided to return to his home state and transfer to the University of Arizona.
According to AZCentral.com, Brewer’s decision to join the Wildcats became official on July 29. He will be joining many former friends and teammates including Notre Dame transfer Davonte’ Neal.
Brewer was among the top of the quarterback rankings coming out of Scottsdale Chaparral High School and surprised the country signing with Mack Brown and the Texas Longhorns in 2012.
In his freshman campaign, Brewer was given the redshirt by the Texas coaching staff and was forced to sit out as the Horns struggled to move the ball. In season number 2, Brewer remained buried in the depth chart behind David Ash and Case McCoy, but another freshman newcomer would cast an even bigger shadow on Brewer.
The emergence and hype-surrounding freshman Tyrone Swoops signified a shift from the Texas coaching staff and Brewer’s chance of becoming the starter began to fade quickly. Now the quarterback will return to his former state of Arizona and begin competing for the starting job at Arizona for the 2014 season.
Brewer confirmed the transfer decision on his Twitter account, saying, “I have committed to the University of Arizona! So excited to play for Coach Rodriguez! More great things to come for this program soon.”
Connor Brewer will not be eligible to play for Arizona until the 2014 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
