For Connor Brewer, will the third time be a charm? Well, I guess we’re going to find out.
On social media Thursday, Brewer announced that he has decided to continue his collegiate playing career at Northern Arizona. As Brewer is a graduate transfer it doesn’t really matter, but the Lumberjacks are an FCS program and he will be eligible to play immediately in 2015.
Brewer will have two years of eligibility remaining, and he claims this will indeed be his last stop.
“After these wild few years of college, I have officially decided that my last stop will be at Northern Arizona University,” the quarterback wrote on Instagram. “I will pursue my graduate degree and have two more years of football to play. I am excited to get on the field again and to finally show people what I am capable of.”
A four-star member of Texas’ 2012 recruiting class, Brewer was rated by Rivals.com as the No. 10 pro-style-quarterback in the country and the No. 5 player at any position in the state of Arizona. He took a redshirt as a true freshman and, after being jumped on the depth chart, decided to transfer from the Longhorns in July of 2013. A month later, he landed at Arizona.
After sitting out the 2013 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules, he did not attempt a single pass in 2014 as he was passed on the depth chart by Jesse Scroggins as the backup to Anu Solomon.
