Former Texas A&M QB Connor Blumrick announces decision to transfer to ACC school
Connor Blumrick started at Texas A&M as a quarterback, before switching to tight end and later to running back. However, he never carved out a role on the Aggies’ offense, mostly playing on special teams the past two seasons.
Now, Blumrick is moving back to quarterback. But he’ll be doing so at a new school.
On Tuesday, Blumrick announced that he is transferring to Virginia Tech to continue his college career. He spent the past four years at Texas A&M, having redshirted his first season in 2017.
In 2018, Blumrick completed his only pass attempt for 8 yards, while also rushing for 20 yards on three carries. In 2019, he had seven carries for 28 yards. He played in 18 games over the past three years, including eight in 2020, although he didn’t record any stats this past season.
Blumrick, who is 6-foot-5 and attended Pearland (Texas) High School, was a 3-star recruit in Texas A&M’s 2017 class. He was the No. 38 pro-style quarterback recruit, per the 247Sports Composite rankings, when he committed to the Aggies on May 20, 2016.
Although Blumrick never made much of an impact at Texas A&M, perhaps he’ll get an opportunity to do so with a fresh start at Virginia Tech.
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
