Former UVA QB Reportedly Visited Big Ten Team

Former UVA quarterback Brennan Armstrong reportedly visited the Wisconsin Badgers Friday.

The former Cavaliers quarterback is on the hunt for a new team and he was in Madison for a visit Friday, according to On3.com.

Former Oklahoma QB Nick Evers committed to the Badgers Saturday morning.

Brennan Armstrong is an interesting prospect.

Armstrong has had a lot of ups and downs over the past two seasons. In 2021, he threw for 4,449 yards and 31 touchdowns to 10 interceptions. He lit it up in UVA’s offense with Bronco Mendenhall as the team’s head coach. He was one of the better passers in the country.

Then, Tony Elliott took over and everything fell apart. 2022 can be best described as a complete and total disaster. Armstrong threw for just 2,210 yards and had seven touchdowns to 12 interceptions. It was an incredible collapse.

The question is whether Armstrong was the problem or if it was Elliott’s new offense. Was it a bit of both? It’s really hard to say. It’s hard to imagine Armstrong went from putting up huge numbers, and then just collapsed for no reason at all.

He clearly didn’t flourish in Elliott’s system, and the numbers make that crystal clear. Now, he wants a fresh start, and with Luke Fickell needing a new passer, Wisconsin appears to be an option.

I will say I see a ton of excitement from fans about getting Nick Evers. I don’t see that same passion for Brennan Armstrong. It’s just an observation, but definitely interesting.

With Evers now committed to Wisconsin, it should be interesting to see what Armstrong decides to do.

    OMG OMG OMG … FanBoy have you informed Coach Fickell that your goggle-eyed galoot pals on the badger message boards don’t want Armstrong. He needs to know that David. Lord knows. the “board monkeys” are a better judge of talent than a highly successful coach. And of course, Phil Longo has played against Armstrong for three years, that might count for something too ….. geeezzzzz.
