Quarterback Michael Brewer announced in January he would be transferring out of the Texas Tech program and Thursday he told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal Clemson is an option.  Tigers’ offensive coordinator Chad Morris was Brewer’s high school coach in Texas.

Brewer said he plans to visit an ACC school in two weeks and then an SEC school after that.  He did not identify either but said Clemson is not the ACC school he will be visiting.

Texas Tech Thursday denied Brewer’s appeal to allow him to transfer to Texas or TCU without restriction.  The sophomore accused Texas Tech doctors of “misdiagnosing” his back injury last summer, a claim that Tech has denied.

Brewer fell behind in the quarterback derby after his injury last summer and played briefly in four games last season.
