One of the top quarterbacks on college football’s transfer market could reportedly end up at UCF.
Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush has interest from several major programs, including Penn State, but there might be a new favorite.
Wimbush is reportedly “heavily considering” UCF.
Notre Dame’s 247Sports’ site had the latest details:
“Multiple sources have informed me that
#NotreDame QB Brandon Wimbush is heavily considering transferring to #UCF and that’s the team to beat. I’m told he’s actually visiting the Knights this weekend. Decision is expected soon,” Tom Loy tweeted.

After a strong career in South Bend with the Fighting Irish, quarterback Brandon Wimbush has decided to play his final year elsewhere upon graduation. The 6-2, 222-pounder has been rumored to end up at Penn State, which is the betting favorite according to some in that platform. It was actually the school he was committed to back in high school before eventually de-committing and ending up at Notre Dame.
However, my sources are indicating that UCF is the favorite to land him at this point and multiple sources believe that’s where he’s leaning as of today. In fact, I’m told he’s visiting UCF this weekend to give them his full consideration. With the plan in place to move quickly, don’t be surprised to see the Knights land him if all goes well.
Wimbush threw for 719 yards and 4 touchdowns for Notre Dame in 2018. He was replaced by Ian Book as the Fighting Irish’s starter.
