One-time blue-chip QB recruit Connor Brewer is returning home. The former Texas Longhorn will transfer to the University of Arizona, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com Monday night.
Brewer, a redshirt freshman, picked the Wildcats after also receiving interest from Alabama and Notre Dame, among others. The 6-1, 195-pound Brewer, rated the No. 4 pro-style quarterback in the class of 2012 by 247Sports, will be eligible in 2014.
Brewer comes to the UA with a hefty local rep. He is the only quarterback in Arizona history to win three state high school championships and holds the state record in career TD passes (100). He is the second touted QB to get on board with Rich Rodriguez's program in the past week, following news that four-star high school prospect Brandon Dawkins also was bound for Tucson.
The story was first reported by Scout.com.
At Arizona, Brewer will be reunited with his former high school coach Charlie Ragle, who coaches the Wildcats tight ends and special teams, and with his old high school teammate WR Davonte' Neal, a Notre Dame transfer.
