School denies former QB’s bid for Big 12 option
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Former Texas Tech backup quarterback Michael Brewer has lost an appeal to avoid giving up a year of eligibility at either TCU or Texas.
The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal (http://bit.ly/1nzPbgU) reports that a five-member panel unanimously rejected Brewer’s appeal Thursday after hearing his case to contact Texas and TCU. Texas Tech policy states that a player who transfers within the conference must sit out the next year and lose a year of eligibility.
Last month, Tech denied Baker Mayfield’s appeal to transfer without restriction to Oklahoma.
Brewer, a redshirt sophomore last season, left the program in January.
Freshman Davis Webb, who shared starts with Mayfield, remains at Texas Tech.
