Liberty has picked up a commitment from Utah transfer quarterback Charlie Brewer, according to sources. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

The 6’1″, 208 pound Brewer started 39 games for Baylor from 2017-2020, helping the Bears to the Big 12 championship game in 2019. He ranks second on Baylor’s career list for passing yards (9,700) and passing touchdowns (65). He then transferred to Utah prior to the 2021 season and won the starting job before being benched three games into the season, at which point he entered the portal.

Brewer ranks No 2 all time at Baylor in career passing yards, and he is the second player in Baylor history to go over 10,000 total yards. A four year starter for the Bears, Brewer helped lead Baylor to the 2020 Sugar Bowl.

With starting quarterback Malik Willis heading to the NFL, the Flames are relatively inexperienced in a quarterback room highlighted by Johnathan Bennett, Kaidon Salter, and Nate Hampton. All three have shown flashes, but Coach Freeze has always prioritized competition, particularly at the quarterback position
