Per the LaCrosse Tribune, “Former record-setting UW-La Crosse quarterback Evan Lewandowski has found a new home. Only this time it’s with a conference rival.
The Lake Zurich, Ill. native announced Monday via Twitter he was transferring to WIAC foe UW-Whitewater:
“Change of plans … I’m headed to Whitewater.”
Lewandowski had originally committed to the University of Maryland on May 1 where transfer rules would have required him to sit out for one academic year. He stayed enrolled at UW-L through last year’s Spring semester. But Maryland recently added prized Alabama quarterback transfer Taulia Tagovailoa, who is the brother of Miami Dolphins and former Alabama star Tua Tagovailoa. With senior Josh Jackson and prized sophomore Lance LeGendre already in the mix, it suddenly became a crowded quarterback room.
The Eagles nearly pulled off the upset against Whitewater, but fell 21-17 on the road to the then No. 3 Warhawks.
Last season after the Eagles nearly pulled off an upset against UW-W, Whitewater coach Kevin Bullis said, “That young man can sling a football. There were times when the ball was going 30 yards down the field, but wouldn’t get six feet off the ground.”
