Connor Brewer transfer: Former 4-star quarterback has several elite options
Connor Brewer is a hot commodity despite never seeing the field in his lone season at Texas. The former four-star recruit has heard from some of college football's elite as he decides his next college destination.
College football's elites were apparently intrigued by the news that Connor Brewer was leaving Texas, as Alabama, Notre Dame, Stanford, UCLA and other squads have already contacted the former four-star recruit, reports Richard Obert of AZCentral.com.
Brewer was ranked as the No. 4 pro-style QB by 247's composite out of Paradise Valley (Ariz.) Chaparral, but the tide was turning away from him at Texas. His co-offensive coordinator and the man who recruited him, Bryan Harsin, left the Longhorns for the head coaching gig at Arkansas State. And as Burnt Orange Nation wrote, the Longhorns have started to tend toward dual-threat type QBs of late, and Brewer was looking like he might lose the competition to be the team's third-string QB. So a transfer seemed wise.
Other schools apparently in the hunt include both homestate schools, Arizona and Arizona State. The Wildcats have shown their ability to produce quality quarterbacks in Nick Foles and Matt Scott, while the Sun Devils will be looking for a new QB in 2014 after the graduation of Taylor Kelly. Stanford, Tennessee and Duke are also in the mix, per Obert. For his part, Brewer says he "doesn't have a school in mind."
