Brock Berglund, a former Colorado high school quarterback who began his career at Kansas, has left Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College and enrolled at North Texas.
Scottsdale offensive coordinator Arna Bontempts confirmed Thursday afternoon that Berglund has left the schools and plans to enroll at UNT. A source within the UNT athletic department confirmed that Berglund has enrolled at the school.
Berglund was among the top rated dual-threat quarterbacks in the Class of 2011. He visited UNT during spring practice earlier this year.
Berglund did not immediately return a message seeking comment, but maintained that UNT was high on his list of potential destinations after visiting the school in mid-April.
“I loved my visit to North Texas,” Berglund said. “They have a great group of coaches and a great group of guys.”
Berglund visited several schools in addition to UNT. Those schools studied Berglund’s transcript and discovered that he does not have the credit hours necessary to transfer and play at another school at the Football Bowl Subdivision level or receive financial aid this season.
He decided this summer to enroll at Scottsdale, where he would have been eligible this fall.
Berglund competed for the starting job at Scottsdale throughout fall practice and participated in the school’s first scrimmage.
“We have a lot of quarterbacks,” Bontempts said. “We told him he would have to come out here and earn the starting job. At the last minute it didn’t work out and North Texas called.”
Bontempts said that Berglund decided to enroll at UNT, where he will have to sit out this season.
Berglund said this summer that he was waiting on a ruling from the NCAA that would determine how many years of eligibility he has remaining.
