Georgia Tech quarterback Taisun Phommachanh, a Stratford native, is returning to New England to play at UMass, he announced on Twitter.

The Former Avon Old Farms star has three years of eligibility remaining. 

Phommachanh committed to Clemson out of Avon Old Farms and played for the Tigers from 2019-21. He entered the 2021 season having completed 11 of 29 passes for 73 yards and rushed for 81 yards on 19 carries over seven games. 

He then transferred to Georgia Tech where Phommachanh completed 2 of 5 passes for 13 yards and one interception for the Yellow Jackets in 2022. He also recorded 15 carries for 56 yards and two touchdowns. Phommachanh entered the transfer portal in December.

The Stratford native who started at Harding was a four-star prospect coming out of high school. The 6-foot-3 208 pound quarterback is the brother of UConn quarterback Tyler Phommachanh.

UConn plays at UMass this season on Nov. 25.
