SHELBY, OH-  Shelby Whippet quarterback Brennan Armstrong who committed to Minnesota in February has had a change of heart. According to 24 seven sports, the Gophers and Armstrong have officially parted ways. 

In a tweet, on Monday morning Armstrong wrote, "After a long process and tons of emotions, my family, coaches and I have decided it is in my best interest to de-commit from the University of Minnesota."  With that being said, I will now be committing to The University of Virginia to further my education and career.  I will be shutting down my recruitment."

Armstrong has led the Whippets to a 13-0 record and a regional championship with a 42-21 win over Bellevue this past Friday night.  The Whippets will face 13-0 Steubenville on Friday in Akron in the Division IV state semifinal at 7:30 pm.
