Texas Tech has quarterback depth problems following another transfer

Texas Tech quarterback Michael Brewer has decided to leave Texas Tech, which means the Red Raiders have some serious concerns under center heading in to the spring. Texas Tech announced the transfer news viaTwitter.

“I am honored to receive my degree from Texas Tech and will always call this university home,” Brewer said in a statement shared by a university spokesperson. “I will never forget the friendships and memories I have made here at Texas Tech. Lubbock has been nothing but great to me and my family and we will always appreciate that. Wherever I may go, I hope our fans will respect the person and player that I am.”

Brewer was third on the team in passing, although played very sparingly behind redshirt freshman Davis Webb, who enters the spring as the expected number one quarterback for the upcoming season, and Baker Mayfield, who has also left the program in hopes of being able to play elsewhere this fall. Mayfield wanted to move to Oklahoma, but a dispute with Texas Tech over transferring to Oklahoma may lead him elsewhere if a resolution cannot be met.

Texas Tech will be likely to add a quarterback to the shallow mix in the Class of 2014, with National Signing Day now just weeks away. The door may also be left with a light on for any potential transfer looking for a chance to play this fall.

Brewer is scheduled to graduate from Texas Tech this spring, which will allow him to transfer to another FBS school and be eligible to play this fall, if he chooses to transfer to another FBS program providing a chance to play this fall.

    If playing time was the concern, I’m not seeing why Mayfield would have wanted to transfer to OU. Trevor Knight is the unquestioned starter after his bowl game performance and Blake Bell will be the obvious backup. Looks like Mayfield would have been going from being a backup at TT to a third-stringer (assuming OU doesn’t have any hot prospects coming in).

    Haha Texas Tech. Now maybe you have a scholarship available that should have gone to Baker Mayfield.
