One week after announcing he would be entering the NCAA transfer portal, Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer is transferring to Utah.
Brewer made the announcement on Twitter on Sunday afternoon.
Brewer just wrapped up his senior season with the Bears, but with the college football season thrown off by COVID-19, the NCAA has allowed players to have a free year of eligibility, if they so choose, and that is the route Brewer is taking.
With the shortened Pac-12 season, the Utah Utes only played five games this season and went 3-2. Their best win came on the road against No. 21 Colorado. Senior Jake Bentley took the bulk of the snaps at quarterback for the Utes, finishing with a 62% completion percentage, 882 yards and six touchdowns with six interceptions.
Utah is one season removed from going 11-3 in which they played for a Pac-12 title and lost to Oregon and the fell to Texas in the Alamo Bowl.
The Baylor Bears followed up last year’s Big 12 title appearance with a 2-7 campaign in 2020, only beating Kansas and Kansas State.
Charlie Brewer finishes his Baylor career holding the No. 2 spot in most Baylor records, trialing only Robert Griffin III, who went on to win the Heisman Trophy. He ended up throwing for 9,700 yards with 65 touchdowns and 28 interceptions, along with 1,039 yards rushing with 22 scores.
