Former Kansas quarterback Brock Berglund is finishing out a series of visits to colleges across the country and could have a decision on where he will continue his college career within the next week.
I spoke with Berglund early last week to see where he was in the process picking a new school.
Berglund was one of the top-rated dual-threat quarterbacks in the country and began his career at Kansas. He left the school and is being pursued by multiple teams across the country, including UNT and its current Sun Belt and future Conference USA rival Florida International.
Berglund said that he has or will visit Miami, FIU, UCLA, UNLV, SMU and Ole Miss before deciding where to enroll for summer school. He will have at least three years of eligibility remaining once he resumes his career.
“It will come down to what my purpose is when I take the next step,” Berglund said last week of what will influence his decision of where to continue his career. “What the goal is and how I can accomplish that. I want to see what school fits athletically, academically and socially.”
Berglund visited UNT on April 13.
“I loved my visit to North Texas,” Berglund said. “They have a great group of coaches and a great group of guys.”
Berglund said that he would take his time while deciding where to continue his career.
The former Valor Christian standout was rated No. 15 among dual-threat quarterbacks in the country in the Class of 2011 by Rivals.com. He would be arguably the most highly regarded quarterback to sign with UNT in recent memory if he elects to play for the Mean Green.
Derek Thompson is at the top of UNT’s depth chart coming out of spring practice after a solid sophomore season. Brent Osborn, another junior, is listed as Thompson’s backup.
