Following his more-difficult-than-it-should-have-been departure from Kansas, quarterback Brock Berglund is looking to get back on his feet at a new school.
That new school could be between a pair of Sun Belt programs.
A source with knowledge of the situation told CFT that Berglund attended a North Texas practice on Friday and added that fellow Sun Belt member FIU also appeared to be a finalist as the next destination for the ex-Jayhawk. The source said Berglund’s parents, who live in Colorado, liked UNT because it was closer to home than FIU.
Berglund tweeted Thursday night “Playin’ darts in Texas.”
Berglund signed with the Jayhawks last year, but an off-the-field incident netted the three-star QB a third-degree assault charge that resulted in the freshman missing all of last season. That charge was eventually dismissed.
Berglund was then dismissed from the team in January by new coach Charlie Weis after Berglund missed a mandatory meeting. Word then came from Berglund’s side that Kansas would not release the quarterback from scholarship; however, Berglund was eventually given his release later that month.
