UCF Football Lands Ex-Notre Dame QB Brandon Wimbush

The UCF football program has made a big addition to its roster, with former Notre Dame Fighting Irish quarterback Brandon Wimbush announcing that he will be transferring from South Bend to Orlando.

Wimbush made the decision to transfer after losing the starting job to redshirt sophomore Ian Book.

The senior signal-caller made his announcement on social media.

“The journey continues on,” Wimbush wrote in an Instagram caption. “A sincere thank you to Notre Dame for giving me endless opportunities on and off the field. Words truly can not describe what this incredible University and the PEOPLE mean to me and always will mean to me. I’m truly thankful. Cannot say it enough.

“With that being said, I am excited to announce that UCF has granted me an awesome opportunity to play my last year of collegiate football for their great University. Thank you to Coach Heupel, and Coach Lebby for this incredible opportunity. Looking forward to winning em all!”

Wimbush finished the season with 719 yards, four touchdowns, and six interceptions before being replaced by Book. Last season, Wimbush passed for 1,870 yards, 16 touchdowns and six interceptions.

At UCF, Wimbush will be joining a program that has not lost a game in two seasons.
