It's been a weird week for the Minnesota Gophers. After being shutout for the second week in a row, the Gophers became a quarterback-less squad as this year's quarterback Demry Croft quit the team, skipped the team banquet and announced his intentions to transfer.
But that's all changed now, or at least we think so, thanks to a young man you've probably never heard of named Vic Viramontes.
P.J. Fleck got a verbal commitment from Viramontes today to transfer from Riverside Community College in California and come play for the Gophers with three years of eligibility left.
A 6-foot-2, 230-pound dual-threat QB, Viramontes was committed to play at Michigan in 2016 before redshirting at California and reopening his enrollment after a coaching change left him unsure. That's how he landed at Riverside this season.
Here is Vic's highlight reel from Norco High in 2015...
Officially, Viramontes will come in to compete for the open quarterback spot next season.
