​This highly-touted QB transfer could be on his way to UCF.

Brandon Wimbush had been the starter for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish before being replaced by Ian Book. Following the regular season, Wimbush declared his intention to transfer in order to find a new starting job around college football. Penn State was originally the heavy favorite to land Wimbush, but it appears that UCF is quietly emerging as the front-runner.

UCF would be a great fit for Wimbush after ​McKenzie Milton went down with a brutal leg injury to end the 2018 season.

The dual-threat quarterback passed for 719 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions this season. He added another 256 yards and one touchdown on the ground for the Fighting Irish. His ability to find space on the ground is a huge selling point to his game, logging 1,156 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns over his career.

Wimbush will reportedly make his decision in the next eight-to-ten days. With UCF in need of a quarterback, they'll push hard for Wimbush.

Coach should bring in a QB transfer at least as an injury insurance policy. If the transfer never plays thats fine by me. Coming out of the Fiesta Bowl, I was under the impression that UCF would make a run at Jalen Hurts knowing that Deondre Francois and Brandon Wimbush were also possibilities
