Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush has announced his graduate transfer decision.
Wimbush, who had interest from several major programs, will be heading to UCF for the 2019 season.
“The journey continues on,” Wimbush wrote on IG. “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!”

UCF makes sense for Wimbush, who lost his starting job at Notre Dame to Ian Book.
The Knights have some major quarterback questions heading into the 2019 season, with McKenzie Milton coming off a disastrous injury.
Wimbush threw for 719 yards and 4 touchdowns during the 2018 season.
UCF is coming off a 12-1 season that ended with a loss to LSU in the Fiesta Bowl.
