Former Kansas QB enrolls at UNT
Brock Berglund left KU because of a coaching change.
DENTON Brock Berglund, former Kansas quarterback and high school standout, has enrolled at UNT this fall.
Because of his transfer, Berglund will sit out for the 2012 season due to NCAA rules. Brett Vito of the Denton-Record Chronicle reports that Berglund does not have enough credit hours to transfer and immediately play.
After leaving Kansas because of a coaching change, Berglund looked at UNT and several other schools, but enrolled at Scottsdale Community College. He is leaving SCC because the team has several other players vying for the starting quarterback position.
In one scrimmage as a SCC Fighting Artichoke, he rushed for 50 yards and threw for 103 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
When he graduated in 2011 from Colorado’s Valor Christian High School, Berglund was ranked No. 15 in the nation for duel-threat quarterbacks by Rivals.com.
Before signing with Kansas, he turned down scholarships from Colorado, UCLA, Boise State, and Kansas State, among others.
Not including Berglund, UNT currently has five quarterbacks on the roster. Redshirt junior Derek Thompson, the current starting quarterback, still has two more years of eligibility.
