Ex-Texas, Arizona QB Connor Brewer heading to Virginia

The Virginia Cavaliers may have lost Greyson Lambert to the Georgia Bulldogs, but they added another talent under center on Tuesday afternoon.

According to a report from 247 Sports, former Texas Longhorns and Arizona Wildcats quarterback Connor Brewer, who was a four-star recruit, is set to transfer to the Virginia program.

ESPN’s Joe Schad later confirmed the report and provided a quote from the signal-caller.

QB Connor Brewer, formerly of Texas and Arizona, said Tue he will play at Virginia this season. Two years to play. Competes immediately.

Connor Brewer: “Virginia is an excellent opportunity to continue to pursue my career and education.”

It was previously reported that Brewer would be heading to Northern Arizona after announcing his transfer from the Wildcats, but the opening in Virginia was too good to pass up.

It will be interesting to see if Brewer can finally break through to a starting lineup.
