Ex-UCLA QB T.J. Millweard to tranfer to Kansas

T.J. Millweard

And just like that, Charlie Weis and Kansas have themselves yet another transfer quarterback.

Just a couple of days ago, T.J. Millweard confirmed that he would be transferring from UCLA, saying he wanted to get back closer to where he grew up in the Midwest and the South.  After a quick visit to the KU campus yesterday, Millweard has decided to continue his playing career with the Jayhawks.

The player informed Weis and some members of the coaching staff of his decision earlier today.

It is official I am a Jayhawk,” Millweard told JayhawkSlant.com. “I called coach Charlie Weis and told him. He was very happy. Then I talked with a couple of the other coaches. I’m already starting the process of applying and I hope to be back and start school on Monday.”

Millweard will be forced to sit out the 2013 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.  He will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2014

A three-star prospect coming out of Coffeyville, Tex., in 2012, Millweard was rated as the No. 23 pro-style quarterback in that year’s class.  He took a redshirt for his true freshman season.

Millweard becomes the third FBS transfer quarterback Weis has added, joining Dayne Chryst (Notre Dame) and Jake Heaps (BYU).  Hopefully, the new guy will fare better than the other two did.

    It’s Dayne Crist…not Chryst. And while I agree that Crist didn’t fare well…at all; Heaps hasn’t taken a snap yet, so let’s not write the kid off yet. Jake had to sit out last year per transfer rules. Crist was able to play right away as a graduate.

    All in all, Kansas is a mess. Who knows who is coming and going and who is playing? A QB needs to be brought into sync with a team and maybe this guy will be a plus. Sit a year learning and practicing, and then perform. Yea, I didn’t recal Heap playing yet, and I cannot recall who was last years QB. Was it Christ? Really would like to see the Jayhawks win a few games and pull some upsets. That midwest conference is real dull. Can they take Colorado back and the PAC-12 get a replacement somewhere else?!

    Dayne Crist’s WRs led the nation in drops last year. It was hardly his fault. He made a bad decision in choosing KU though. His final year would’ve gone much better at Wisconsin.

    How has Heaps fared poorly? He sat out and is to be the starter. Doesn’t sound like a disappointing transfer so far.

    So did the kid take a trip to Kentucky first, the call fat Charlie to tell him he wants to attend KU? What’s with the UK reference?

    You forgot to tag Kentucky in the file tags ; )

    To get to Coffeyville…you need a tranfer (headline)

    Given they’re coming off a winless year, this kid may never get a chance to play for Charlie. And with three years of eligibility remaining, odds are extremely high he won’t end his career at KU with Weis as his coach.

    And UK is Kentucky. KU is the University of Kansas. If you get confused, maybe you can look at their helmets next time.
