NC State officially landed a commitment from transfer quarterback Brennan Armstrong on Saturday afternoon.

Armstrong will head to Raleigh to play his final season of college eligibility. He played the previous 5 seasons of his career at Virginia.

Here’s his announcement:

Armstrong struggled during the 2022 campaign while at Virginia. The Cavaliers’ offense took a big step back from their heights during the 2021 season under Bronco Mendenhall and Robert Anae.

However, there’s plenty of reasons to have optimism about Armstrong’s potential in the NC State offense in 2023. He’ll be reuniting with Anae, who has been hired to be the Wolfpack’s offensive coordinator for this upcoming season.

Armstrong and Anae led Virginia to one of the most explosive offenses in the country in 2021. Virginia was 5th in the country yards-per-play that season. Armstrong threw for 4,449 yards and was on pace to set the ACC’s single-season passing record before a late-season injury plagued him in November. He played in just 11 games that season, but still comfortably led the ACC in passing.

In his career, Armstrong has thrown for 9,304 yards and 58 touchdowns. He’s currently 21st in ACC history in all-time passing yards, but is less than 1,000 yards from the top 10. He’s also rushed for 250+ yards in each of the last 3 seasons.

It remains to be seen what this means for NC State’s other quarterbacks on the roster. MJ Morris and Ben Finley could decide to remain with the Wolfpack in 2023 or they could opt for the portal as well.

NC State will play at Virginia in 2023. The date for that game is still to be announced.
