Virginia Tech added transfer quarterback Connor Blumrick from Texas A&M on Tuesday evening. He is expected to compete with Braxton Burmeister for the quarterback job, though he could potentially play other positions as well.
Texas A&M will always hold a special place in my heart. The friends and family that I have made here will stick with me forever. With that being said, I am excited to announce that I have committed to continue my football career at Virginia Tech University #gohokies pic.twitter.com/NU0qrUlTXs

Blumrick was an Elite 11 quarterback, but he suffered a Lisfranc injury in the first game of his senior season of high school, which knocked him out for the season. That impeded his development, and he eventually moved to running back and tight end. He is considered an excellent athlete, he’s one of the most popular players in the Texas A&M program, and he was recommended to Justin Fuente by Darrell Dickey, Fuente’s former offensive coordinator at Memphis who is now the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Texas A&M.
Blumrick is 6-5, 215, and he’ll have two seasons of eligibility remaining. He is expected to enroll at Virginia Tech for the spring semester.
