Central Florida Golden Knights
2018 Fantasy Outlook
A rocky end to the season clouds how valuable Wimbush was last year. He ran for 803 yards and 14 scores and added 16 passing TDs. The disappointing part was his passing numbers. Wimbush was a blue-chip recruit partly because of his passing ability, but he posted a 49.5 completion percentage and just 1,870 yards. He'll need to hold off some competitors to retain the starting job, but assuming he does, Wimbush will be valuable again. Wimbush's rushing ability gives him a solid floor, and a natural progression as a passer will make him even more valuable in 2018. Read Past Outlooks
Transfers to Central Florida
QBNo Current School
January 15, 2019
Wimbush is transferring to Central Florida and will be immediately eligible for the 2019 season, Pete Sampson of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
This is a major acquisition for Central Florida as it will be getting a quality starter who has played at a high level against big-time competition. Wimbush started every game of Notre Dame's 2017 season and put up 2,673 total yards and 30 total touchdowns. Central Florida was looking at some uncertainty in its quarterback room prior to Wimbush's transfer as McKenzie Milton's status for 2019 in serious question due to a serious knee injury. As it stands, Wimbush should be considered the favorite to beat out Darriel Mack for the starting job at UCF.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Wimbush arrived in South Bend as a much-ballyhooed quarterback recruit, but with DeShone Kizer and Malik Zaire already on the roster at that time, he had to wait his turn. Now that Kizer is off to the NFL and Zaire is battling for the starting job at Florida, Wimbush is now ready to take over behind center for the Irish. Notre Dame will be working under the guidance of new offensive coordinator Chip Long, who has an impressive track record from his previous stops at Arizona State and Memphis. Long's philosophy should be beneficial to Wimbush's transition into the starting role as well as his production. Wimbush has a talented supporting cast, highlighted by wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown alongside tight ends Durham Smythe and Alize Mack. What's more, Wimbush's mobility should make him one of the more productive rushing quarterbacks, which bolsters his floor. If everything clicks for Wimbush, he should be one of the best first-year starters in the nation this season.
