UCLA transfer QB T.J. Millweard commits to KU


T.J. Millweard, a freshman quarterback at UCLA, told Thursday he will transfer to Kansas University.

Millweard, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound quarterback from Colleyville, Texas, was competing for the No. 2 QB job at UCLA before deciding to transfer. He sat out 2012 as a redshirt year and, according to the L.A. Times, will have three years of eligibility remaining after sitting out this season.

"I called coach Charlie Weis and told him. He was very happy," Millweard told JayhawkSlant. "Then I talked with a couple of the other coaches. I'm already starting the process of applying and I hope to be back and start school on Monday."

Millweard, who spent some of his childhood years in Kansas, attended KU's practice Wednesday. He was ranked the 23rd-best quarterback in's class of 2012.

Not sure why, but the name Brock Berglund keeps springing to mind.....

Good catch, ptp. Depth and competition are good. Suprised at no. 23 in the country that he is not a four-star.

As far as ads go, I agree that it is really no big deal and we should take a second or two to just give a good answer. The fact that the site is free is everything. I don't do ESPN Insider, Jayhawk Slant, etc. This is a minor issue some of you are blowing totally out of proportion. Go rant on ESPN for making you use Facebook now. Now that sucks. Thank you LJW for keeping it free.

Keep them coming Charlie. Sounds like a perfect fit for the offense.

Only 1020 days since KU won a conference football game.

This is good news. Hopefully now we have at least a steady future at QB.

R C 1990 ~ re LJW 'questions' ~ sounds like you are not alone in your type of response ~ there's at least three; no, make that four; oops, five ~ oh, heck, a bunch who respond in kind. Actually, I must admit to having 'complained' about this issue, and following a very pleasant discussion with the person who oversees this feature ~ I apologized to her for my 'nitpicking' what really is a minor annoyance ~ in the overall scheme of all things Jayhawk.

Nice positive article. CW Jr. Seems to be on solid ground, likes Lawrence. All good. Thanks for posting.

Off subject, but I thought this was an interesting piece worthy of sharing...

Best thing about the transfers: They get to sit a year, learning the playbook, developing chemistry with WRs, and getting Holsoppled... Weis building the developmental pipeline machine alongside the on-field product improving...I like it. Losing a QB to injury could derail a season, as happened to Weis at NDame. He is making sure he has capable depth at the position. Exactly what every good, tough team needs.

This kid originally committed to Virginia Tech then de-committed and committed to Airzona State. Then he de-committed from Arizona State and signed with UCLA. Now he's leaving UCLA and committing to KU.

I'll guess his favorite move is ""The Little Mermaid" because "the seaweeds always greener in somebody else's lake!"

Awesome and welcome aboard the DREAM TEAM 2013 TJ !!! Happy to have as a Jay Hawk.

Glad to see this. This kid seems to have a lot of positive things to say. It sounds like a great fit. I'm exciting to see him in action. Probably won't unseat Heaps but I expect he'll challenge for back-up and be a projected starter in 2 years.

hope he is in for some competition and doesn't expect to be the next in a short line of transfer starters....Cozart looked pretty dang good recently.

Either way, any and all competition at the QB position should foster better play all around. Big plus for the KU football team whether he wins the starting job 2 years from now or not.

Same thing I said yesterday, depth breeds competition which breeds players consistently getting better which breeds more wins. I do however sense a transfer or change of position coming for someone not named Heaps though. After Heaps leaves, Cummings will have one year left and Cozart, Darling, and Millweard will all have 2 years left.

Welcome aboard, T.J.! Glad to have you aboard. Believe me, we need all the help we can get.

Go to a bowl this year, and recruiting will improve. Welcome TJ!

“Millweard, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound quarterback from Colleyville, Texas,…”

This acquisition is exciting news, and it appears T.J. is rapidly getting into shape! He has already dropped 20 pounds (and one inch in height) in just one day :^)

“According to reports, the 6-foot-4, 230-pound former three-star QB who ranked as the 23rd best quarterback in the country in the 2012 recruiting class, has decided to leave UCLA to finish his career at a school closer to his hometown.”

Welcome, TJ! On another note, do the folks who put these pop up questionnaires on the website actually think the results are valid? I can't be the only one who just clicks randomly to get past them can I?

Welcome T. J.! You'll never regret becoming part of the Jayhawk Nation !

Welcome T.J. -- You will find Lawrence to be a great town to be in and treasure your years as a Jayhawk.

Rock Chalk! Glad to have you, T.J.!!!!
