The UCF Knights lost QB McKenzie Milton to a devastating knee injury in Week 13 this year, and his rehab may mean he’ll miss the 2019 season.
However, the Knights are prepared for that possibility, landing an intriguing big-name graduate transfer quarterback on Tuesday.
As you can see in the Instagram post below, former Notre Dame QB Brandon Wimbush will be heading to Orlando for the 2019 campaign:

The journey continues on… A sincere thank you to Notre Dame for giving me endless opportunities on and off the field. Words truly can not describe what this incredible University and the PEOPLE mean to me and always will mean to me. I’m truly thankful. Cannot say it enough. With that being said, I am excited to announce that UCF has granted me an awesome opportunity to play my last year of collegiate football for their great University. Thank you to Coach Heupel, and Coach Lebby for this incredible opportunity. Looking forward to winning em all! #GoIrish #GoKnights
Wimbush appeared in six games for the Irish in 2018, throwing for 719 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions. He had his best year in 2017, throwing for 1,870 yards, 16 touchdowns and six picks. He also added 804 yards and eight touchdowns as a runner.
How he’ll fit into Josh Heupel’s offense remains to be seen, but he is an exciting addition to a talented squad.
