After spending just two years at Arizona, redshirt sophomore Connor Brewer will try to find his third home for his fourth season of college football. Brewer already has his degree, allowing him to play immediately with two years of eligibility.
Brewer was a former five-star quarterback, with offers from Alabama, Stanford, Miami and Nebraska, but ultimately chose Texas. At Texas, he redshirted in 2012 before deciding to transfer to Arizona. He had to sit out in 2013 due to NCAA transfer rules and was in the quarterback competition for 2014, but ultimately fell behind.

Going forward, many believe that it’s up to Anu Solomon and Brandon Dawkins to compete for the starting quarterback job for the Wildcats in 2015, with Jerrard Randall on the outside looking in. According to most, Brewer wasn’t in the conversation for 2015, as he was the only scholarship quarterback to not throw a pass this season.
It’s pretty fair to say that we have Cayleb Jones because of Brewer. Due to off-the-field issues, Jones and his family thought it was best for him to transfer from Texas, ending up in Tucson just weeks after Brewer.
Brewer’s former high school coach, Charlie Ragle, serves as the assistant coach, meanwhile his top high school target, DaVonte Neal, chose to transfer to Arizona to be closer to family after spending his year at Notre Dame. Arizona seemed for the perfect fit for Brewer to come in and compete for the starting job.
Brewer now needs to pick a school where he can start right away. San Diego State University seems like a viable option for Brewer, as he’ll be able to start for two years there. It’s worth noting that he took an official visit to SDSU after leaving Texas. Best of luck, Connor.
