Quarterback Charlie Brewer, previously the starter at both Baylor and Utah, is transferring to Liberty, multiple outlets reported Saturday.

Brewer has one year of eligibility remaining.

He began the 2021 season as Utah’s starting quarterback but decided to leave the program in September after he was replaced during the third game of the season. Cameron Rising took over in a 33-31 loss to San Diego State in triple overtime and led the Utes to a 10-3 record and a berth in the Rose Bowl against Ohio State.

“Charlie has decided to move on and we wish him the best,” coach Kyle Whittingham said in a statement issued Sept. 21, three days after the loss to the Aztecs.

Brewer was 1-2 as a starter, Rising 9-1.

Brewer joined the Utes in 2021 as a graduate transfer after four seasons at Baylor. Brewer completed 48 of 79 passes for 484 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions this season.

He passed for 9,700 yards, 65 touchdowns and 28 picks at Baylor (2017-20).

Liberty will need a quarterback to replace Malik Willis, a potential first-round selection in the 2022 NFL Draft. Also on the Liberty roster is Kaidon Salter, a four-star prospect in the Class of 2021 who committed to Tennessee but was dismissed from the program before the season after two run-ins with the law.

Liberty (7-5) will meet Eastern Michigan (7-5) in the LendingTree Bowl on Dec. 18.
