West Florida QB Mike Beaudry is transferring to UConn

The UConn football team received a commitment from former University of West Florida quarterback Mike Beaudry on Sunday.

Beaudry, who threw for 3,215 yards with 29 touchdown passes as a junior, will be immediately eligible and has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Beaudry led West Florida into the 2017 NCAA Division II national championship game but he only attempted six passes in the only game he played during the 2018 season before suffering a foot injury.

The 6-foot-5 Beaudry is a native of Saskatchewan who moved to Florida when he was 11. He is expected to be one of four scholarship quarterbacks on UConn’s roster for the upcoming season joining Steve Krajewski and Marvin Washington, who combined to throw 27 passes last season, and incoming true freshman Jack Zergiotis.

Beaudry announced his commitment on Twitter after taking an official visit to UConn.

Speaking of Canadian natives, Kevens Clercius also announced his commitment on Twitter.

A receiver out of Montreal was linked with UConn early on in the recruiting process and made it official on Sunday.
