Brandon Wimbush announces he is transferring to UCF from Notre Dame

UCF Knights

Brandon Wimbush was replaced as Notre Dame’s starting quarterback by Ian Book early on in the 2018 season, and it is no surprise that he has decided to transfer to another program heading into next year.

On Tuesday, Wimbush announced on Instagram that he is joining UCF as a graduate transfer. He thanked Notre Dame and said he is looking forward to a fresh start with another one of the nation’s top programs.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly spoke a lot about using two quarterbacks early in the season, but ultimately it was Book who provided the better spark for the Irish offense and led them to a College Football Playoff berth. Wimbush clearly took the benching hard at first, though he seemed to handle it better as the season progressed.

It’s unclear if McKenzie Milton will be cleared for the start of the season after he suffered a gruesome leg injury, so Wimbush could end up competing with sophomore Darriel Mack Jr. for the starting job at UCF.
