Former Utah and Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer has officially entered the NCAA transfer portal, according to 247Sports. Brewer transferred from Baylor to Utah after the 2020 season and earned the starting job leading into the 2021 season. But then he abruptly left the Utah program last month after losing his starting job to Cameron Rising.
At the time, Utah released a short statement to the Salt Lake Tribune saying, “Charlie has decided to move on and we wish him the best.”
Brewer saw his passing numbers fall in each of his three starts for the Utes. He threw for 233 yards in the opener against FCS power Weber State, followed by 147 yards against BYU and 104 yards against San Diego State, the game that led to his benching. Brewer threw three touchdowns and three interceptions for the season.
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.
Brewer still has one year of eligibility remaining. He transferred to Utah without having used his redshirt. Per the Salt Lake Tribune, he could use his redshirt for the remainder of this year and transfer to another school to play in 2022.
