Brock Purdy no longer is the only member of his family playing quarterback in the South Bay.

The 49ers QB’s younger brother, Chubba, announced Sunday on X, formerly known as Twitter, that he’s committed to play football at San Jose State University after entering the NCAA transfer portal.

Chubba Purdy's move to San Jose State comes after two other college stops, at Florida State from 2020 to 2021, and then at Nebraska, where he appeared in 12 games from 2022 to 2023. Purdy has appeared in 16 games in his collegiate career, completing 85 of 163 passes for 846 yards and six touchdowns with seven interceptions.

San Jose State wasn't the only Bay Area university interested in Chubba's services, as the newest Spartans quarterback revealed via a post on X that he’d also received an offer from Cal.

Now in close proximity to his brother, Chubba has the ultimate resource to lean on after the elder Purdy took the NFL by storm during his first two seasons in the league.

After back-to-back seasons with seven wins, San Jose State will look to reach a bowl game for the third consecutive season by tapping into their own Purdy magic and creating a family powerhouse at the quarterback position in Santa Clara County.
