Default Transfer - QB Connor Brewer

QB who has spent time at both Texas and most recently Arizona who has recently graduated and been granted his release to immediately play his final two years of eligibility elsewhere.

Texas message boards seem to think that we are after him pretty heavily and they are saying we have already got him set up to make an OV to Columbia soon after NSD.

Part of the class of 2012 he was a 94 rated 4-star out of Chaparral HS in Scottsdale, AZ and was rated the #4 pro-style QB nationally by 24/7 and was #154 in their top 247 list.

He had offers from Alabama, Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Stanford, Tennessee, Texas and Texas A&M.

Just wondering if anybody had any further insight into our possible chances or if we are actually pursuing him as hard as Texas folks seem to think.

His dad is one of the people claiming that South Carolina is bringing him in after signing day.

did he play any at either of those two schools.....not a very good sign if he has already transferred once.

What you said. Only thing I can think of though is a what-if kind of thing, you are a pro-style qb at Arizona, then they hire RichRod, and you are not going to fit into his offense.

But I think RichRod has been at Arizona longer than this kid has been out of High School.

So why did he go to Arizona in the first place, after leaving Texas? Assuming that was his situation.

If we got a transfer I'd much rather have Golson. Of course a lot of teams want him.

Pro style QB and transferred to Arizona? Not exactly the style Rich Rod is looking for.

I don't know anything about this kid but I wouldn't mind bringing him in, since it said he has 2 years left to play. I hate 1 year fixes but a possible 2 year started is something I like. However, I won't believe we are pursuing him until I hear he is actually on campus.

It would be nice to have him, but if it's true we are pursuing this guy, does this speak at all toward a lack of faith in Our current QB candidates?

Why? Did you watch him throughout his time at ND? I will never understand why so many want this kid. Also he is a one year fix.

While I agree with your premise, but to play Devils advocate, couldn't you say that about any recruit you bring in? The idea is that every recruit you bring in to replace the current guy, even if the current kid is a true freshman.

I think he was just looking to go back home and realizes he made a mistake

Default Re: Transfer - QB Connor Brewer

I'm trying to think of QBs that have transferred to SC. Seems like Mike Hold transferred here and played. (may have been a JUCO) Sparky brought a guy in from App State who played. Has Spurrier ever done that?

Hold was a Juco and ran the Veer. Bobby Fuller came from Ap State with Sparky. We had another, Mike Rathe. I think he was at the beginning of the SOS era (?)

I knew guys on the team with Rathe and they all thought he should have played but Skip and Lou loved Pinkins running ability. The few times he played, you could see why the guys liked him. I just remembered Pinkins being unable to throw a fade in bounds and give the WR a chance.

I hope we get this kid here. 2 years left, loads of arm talent. He DID play in a few games, might have started one I think last year... Here is a video- looks like it mixes HS, and college, some practice some live game... He has a good arm, no idea about his running, kind of grainy vid.

I hope he comes, too. Although, it appears many of us were right to assume our QB situation could be in dire straits next year. All the more reason to get this kid on campus.

He runs for like 20 yards on the 3-5 play. Looks to be athletic enough to be a threat but prefers to pass it; I prefer QBs who play that way.
