Michael Brewer may be swapping one Tech for another.

The Texas Tech quarterback announced his transfer in January, and after being denied the ability to transfer to either Texas or TCU, Brewer has headed east.

CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler has confirmed that Brewer will visit Virginia Tech, The Richmond Times-Dispatch originally reported Brewer has been in contact with Virginia Tech about transferring to play with the Hokies. Brewer did say he would be visiting an unnamed ACC school earlier this month, and he also said he'd be visiting an SEC school as well.

If Brewer does end up at Virginia Tech it would be a move that made sense for him.

Since Brewer graduates from Texas Tech this spring he won't be required to sit out a season before being eligible to play. With the Hokies losing Logan Thomas to graduation, Brewer would have the chance to step right in and compete for the starting job right away. Though with spring practices opening up all over the country in the coming weeks, Brewer will have to make a decision on his future soon.

Wherever Brewer ends up, he'll still have two years of eligibility remaining.
