Texas A&M Transfer QB Commits to Virginia Tech

Texas A&M Transfer QB Commits to Virginia Tech
Connor Blumrick, Former Texas A&M QB/RB

Justin Fuente and the Virginia Tech Football Staff strike again in the same week with the landing of Texas A&M Transfer Quarterback, Connor Blumrick. The former Aggie quarterback decided to transfer to the Hokies on Tuesday afternoon with a commitment tweet.

Coming out of Pearland High School in Texas, Blumrick held a 247 Composite Rating of 0.8462. In his recruitment from the Aggies, Blumrick was recruited mainly as a quarterback, but surprisingly played some running back in college. This comes to a surprise to most as Blumrick comes in at 6'5 and weighing in at 215 pounds.

Blumrick held other offers such as Ole Miss, Memphis, and Texas State during his high school recruitment.

During his time at Texas A&M, Blumrick didn't record many stats at the quarterback spot. The Texas A&M coaching staff elected to not waste Blumrick's talent. And due to the strong competition at the QB spot for the Aggies he was moved to running back. This is where we saw the transfer play most of his snaps at Texas A&M, amounting for 10 carries for 48 yards.

It is being said that the Hokies are going to try Blumrick out at the quarterback position above all, especially with the loss of Hendon Hooker and Quincy Patterson to the Transfer Portal. We could very well have a QB competition come spring time between Braxton Burmeister and Connor Blumrick, and maybe even True-Freshman Tahj Bullock whether he is redshirted or not.

Blumrick joins the Hokies as the fourth commitment out of the Transfer Portal this offseason joining Vanderbilt DB Tae Daley, Maryland OL Johnny Jordan, and Clemson DT Jordan Williams. Keep an eye on what the Hokies are bringing in through the portal this offseason, as this was a focus point last season.

What’s going on Hokie Nation! My name is Evan Norris and I am currently a junior studying HNFE here at Virginia Tech. I’ve grown up a Hokie my whole life, with family members being huge Hokie fans.

Growing up I’ve witnessed Virginia Tech Recruiting first-hand through family friends being recruited and through players at the University. Also growing up in some of the best recruiting areas the state has to offer, in the Hampton Roads Area and Richmond Area, I have seen great high school football growing up. This has led me to strive for a future career in college football recruiting. I run @RecruitVT on Twitter/Instagram to keep up engagement with prospective recruits and fans alike.
