QB Connor Brewer officially signs with Texas

+Read full article

 

Among all the recent hand wringing and debate over which Texas quarterback will lead the Longhorns back to their rightful spot among the college football elite, a third option officially entered into the mix today.

Connor Brewer, the quarterback from Scottsdale, AZ, officially signed his scholarship papers today, and is scheduled to arrive in Austin on Sunday as the spring session is set to begin.

Brewer, rated as the #3 quarterback on ESPN’s top 150 (34th overall) had an impressive high school career. As a three-year starter, he passed for over 7,500 yards, threw 100 touchdowns to just 17 interceptions, and was the only quarterback from the state of Arizona to ever lead his team to 3 consecutive state titles.

Brewer joins David Ash and Case McCoy as the only quarterbacks currently on the Horns’ roster, though dual threat QB/athlete, Jalen Overstreet, is expected on the Forty Acres this summer.

Texas fans are hoping that either Ash, who seemingly has the edge heading into the spring, or McCoy will develop into the next great quarterback for the Horns, which would allow Brewer to redshirt next season as he adjusts to the college game.

Having witnessed two consecutive freshmen quarterbacks who were thrown into the fire before they were ready (Garrett Gilbert in the BCS Title Game and Ash this past season) it’s clear that the extra year for Brewer would be best for his personal development as well as the future of the program.
