Virginia quarterback Brennan Armstrong has entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer.

The left-handed passer from Ohio broke just about every Virginia offensive record during his time as the Cavaliers’ quarterback, and would leave the UVA program with more than 9,000 yards passing. He threw for 2,210 yards his senior season, along with seven TDs and 12 interceptions.

It is no surprise that Armstrong is considering leaving. His frustration level was high throughout Virginia’s 10-game season, the final two games cancelled due to the shooting deaths of three of his teammates on Nov. 13. Armstrong often shared with media his frustration that the passing game just wasn’t clicking in a new system brought in by new coach Tony Elliott and offensive coordinator Des Kitchings.

After leading the country in most passing categories in 2021, this past season was a huge disappointment. In ‘21, Armstrong threw for 4,449 yards and 31 TDs (10 interceptions) and completed a high percentage of his passes, particularly throwing deep.
