Quarterback Braxton Burmeister has transferred to San Diego State, bringing him back to his hometown.

The La Jolla Country Day graduate, who left Virginia Tech, became the sixth transfer to become an Aztec.

Speculation swirled around Burmeister, who also played at Oregon, as the SDSU announced the addition of the five other transfers last week.

He went 8-7 in his two years at Virginia Tech, completing 190 of his 339 passes for 2,647 yards and 16 touchdowns with five interceptions. He also rushed for 690 yards and four touchdowns. Last season, Burmeister was 142-for-255 for 1,960 yards and 14 touchdowns with four interceptions, while rushing 116 times for 508 yards and two scores.

He has started 20 times and appeared in 29 games over his career, combining to throw for 3,020 yards with 19 touchdowns against 11 interceptions. He has completed 239 of his 426 attempts (56.1%), while rushing for 834 yards and seven touchdowns.

Burmeister sat out the 2019 season at Virginia Tech because of NCAA transfer rules after playing 11 games at Oregon in 2017-18. He started five times as a true freshman in 2017, passing for 330 yards and two touchdowns.

Burmeister set CIF San Diego Section career records in total yards (14,972), passing yards (11,512), passing touchdowns (127) and completions (853) in four varsity seasons at La Jolla Country Day. He was named a first-team Parade All-American following his senior season.

SDSU finished 25th in the final Associated Press football poll of the 2021 season, ending the campaign with a school-record 12 victories.

San Diego State kicks off its 100th season of football on Sept. 3 against Arizona. The school will play the first game at the new Snapdragon Stadium in Mission Valley.
