Ex-Texas Tech QB says he's Blacksburg bound

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Former Texas Tech quarterback Michael Brewer says he will transfer to Virginia Tech, where he can compete to replace Logan Thomas.

Brewer posted on his Twitter account: “Excited and humbled to announce that I will be attending Virginia Tech.” He is set to graduate from Texas Tech in May so he’ll be eligible to play for the Hokies next season. Virginia Tech is trying to replace three-year starter Thomas.

Virginia Tech could not yet confirm Brewer’s decision.

Brewer was expected to compete for the starting job last year in Lubbock, but a back injury cost him preseason workouts and much of the season. As a sophomore, he played in four games and completed 7 for 10 passes for 65 yards.

The Austin, Texas, native has two years of eligibility left.
