Former Texas QB Connor Brewer has transferred to the University of Arizona. Brewer will return home to Arizona with a chance to compete for the starting quarterback position for the 2014 season.
Brewer was the no. 7 ranked quarterback prospect coming out of high school in 2012. He set state record in Arizona with 100 touchdown passes for his career and winning 3 state titles. The 6’1″ 195 lb. Brewer also had Alabama, Notre Dame, Stanford, Louisville, Tennessee and UCLA expressing interest in him. The Wildcats had the edge in acquiring Brewer after Charlie Ragle, Brewer’s former head coach at Chapparral High School in Scottsdale, AZ was named the Wildcats new tight ends and special teams coach.
Brewer will have his hands full winning the starting quarterback job for the 2014 season. Anu Solomon, former USC QB Jesse Scroggins, Javelle Allen, and Brandon Dawkins will all have their sites set on starting at QB for the Wildcats. Brewer may have the inside track with his familiarity with the offense from his high school days, but we will all have to wait to see how it plays out for next season.
