Former Texas Longhorns backup quarterback Connor Brewer is transferring to Arizona, he announced Monday night on Twitter.
"I have committed to the University of Arizona! So excited to play for Coach [Rich] Rodriguez! More great things to come for this program soon," he wrote.
Brewer was a standout at Chaparral High School, in Scottsdale, leading the team to three straight state titles. He redshirted his freshman season in Texas and will be eligible to play for Arizona in 2014. He didn't appear in a game last season while playing behind starter David Ash.
---Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde will not be charged in the alleged assault last month that led to his suspension from the Buckeyes' football team last week.
Hyde, who rushed for 970 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2012, was barred from team activities by coach Urban Meyer last Monday. His reinstatement remains open pending the outcome of the student code of conduct investigation.
Columbus police closed their investigation Tuesday into the July 20 incident in which a 19-year-old woman was the alleged victim. She declined to press charges.
---Former Rutgers University football player Eric LeGrand will have his No. 52 retired early this season, the first number retired by the school in its 144-year football history. The ceremony is scheduled for Sept. 14, when Eastern Michigan visits High Point Solutions Stadium.
LeGrand was paralyzed from the neck down after making a tackle in a game Oct. 16, 2010, but vows to walk again one day. The No. 52 jersey has been worn once since that play, by LeGrand's close friend, Khaseem Greene.

"Fortunately the medical staff caught it very quickly," Muschamp said. "His surgery went well and how long he is out will be determined by how his body responds, which could be two weeks."
