Notre Dame's Wimbush transferring to UCF

Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush on Tuesday announced that he’s transferring to the University of Central Florida for his final season.
Wimbush made the announcement via Instagram.
“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,” Wimbush posted.
Wimbush amassed 2,606 passing yards and 20 touchdowns with 12 interceptions during his Notre Dame career, adding 1,155 rushing yards and 16 rushing touchdowns.
Wimbush started the first three games of the Irish’s 2018 season before being replaced by Ian Book on Sept. 22 at Wake Forest. Wimbush started his final game in place of an injured Book on Nov. 10 in South Bend, a 42-13 victory over Florida State. He passed for three touchdowns in that contest.
Wimbush finished 13-3 as a starter for Notre Dame.
He joins a UCF program that featured phenom three-year starter QB McKenzie Milton, who was felled by a gruesome knee injury during the Knights’ regular-season finale against South Florida in November.
Milton’s status is uncertain. Milton has one year of eligibility left to play, but is scheduled to have a second surgical procedure on his knee on Jan. 25.
Redshirt freshman Darriel Mack Jr. started the final two games for UCF.
“With McKenzie Milton recovering from a knee injury, this will give the Knights an experienced veteran to help the young quarterbacks out,” UCF wrote in a web post about Wimbush’s decision.
Wimbush is eligible to play next season as a graduate transfer.
