Burmeister was a 6’1 207 four star recruit from La Jolla, CA. He was the tenth ranked dual threat QB and the 32nd ranked overall recruit from the state of California in the 2017 class.
He chose to enter the transfer portal after this past season in which he played a total of four games, most of it coming in for a hurt Justin Herbert during the Civil War. He leaves the Ducks with a stat line of 49/87 (56%), 373 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions in 11 games spread over two years. His most significant action came in 2017, filling in for an injured Herbert under center for seven games.
According to multiple reports, he will have to sit out the 2019 season due to the still in place old transfer rules. He will compete for the starting job in 2020.
#Hokies add another QB, this time from the transfer market as they get 4-Star Braxton Burmeister from Oregon. He will have to sit out a year before he is eligible to play. https://t.co/BLIDchdINS— Trey Lyle (@TreyLyle) February 23, 2019
VT needed a QB to fill out the depth chart as former starter Joshua Jackson transferred to Maryland and leaves a relatively barren QB room.
He was eligible for a redshirt this past season and took it after a rocky freshman season in 2017.
It didn’t work out for him in Eugene but we all hope that he finds success in Blacksburg for the Hokies.
Good luck, Braxton!
