(AP) -- Former Texas Tech quarterback Michael Brewer says he will transfer to Virginia Tech, where he can compete to replace Logan Thomas.
"Excited and humbled to announce that I will be attending Virginia Tech," Brewer posted on his Twitter account Sunday. He is set to graduate from Texas Tech in May, so he'll be eligible to play for the Hokies next season.
Virginia Tech could not yet confirm Brewer's decision, but he told The Roanoke (Va.) Times he chose Virginia Tech over Kentucky after visiting Blacksburg, Va., and meeting with Hokies coach Frank Beamer and offensive coordinator Scott Loeffler. The Austin, Texas, native had been restricted from transferring to another Big 12 school by Texas Tech.
