#Woof: Huskies Add A Grad Transfer QB

Huskies Add A Grad Transfer QB

NCAA Football: Stanford at Washington Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Happy New Year’s Eve Husky fans. The Huskies added a grad transfer QB today when Patrick O’Brien (from Colorado State), committed to UW. After the recent departure of both Ethan Garbers and Jacob Sirmon the Huskies were down to 2 scholarship quarterbacks for the 2021 season. O’Brien is listed at 6’5” and around 235 pounds and last year he threw for 2,800 yards and 13 touchdowns (versus 7 interceptions). His completion percentage was 61.8 on the season. In a shortened 2020 season he threw for just under 600 yards and 3 touchdowns versus 2 interceptions. Picking up O’Brien gives the Huskies another seasoned QB who is a pocket passer and will compete for the starting job in 2021. O’Brien looks to have a strong arm, and is a good fit for the Husky offense that we saw in 2020.

Here are some of his highlights he posted from last year.

That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
