A little over a month after announcing via Twitter that he was transferring from West Virginia, quarterback Barry Brunetti has found a new football home.
And, of course, he announced his destination via Twitter.
The ex-Mountaineers backup quarterback revealed on the social media site Tuesday that he will be taking his dual-threat talents to Ole Miss. Brunetti said he will enroll at the school for the spring semester, which begins Jan. 23.
Brunetti told the Jackson Clarion-Ledger that he informed head coach Houston Nutt of his decision Monday night.
Due to his mother’s poor health — she was injured in a car accident several years ago and Brunetti said her condition has worsened — Brunetti, a Memphis native, will seek a waiver from the NCAA that would allow him to play immediately instead of sitting out the requisite transfer year.
If Brunetti is granted the waiver, the soon-to-be sophomore would begin competing with presumptive starter Nathan Stanley and Randall Mackey for the starting job beginning in spring practice.
