"I think it's awesome," Brehaut said of UofL's offer. "I think extremely highly of Louisville just because of what they've been able to do with both of the Brohm brothers and the other quarterbacks they've produced. It's a great school to play quarterback at."
As a junior, Breahaut threw for 2,348 yards and 22 touchdowns, completing 65 percent of his throws. He also ran for 528 yards and five touchdowns and shared league Co-MVP honors with Josh Nunes, another four-star quarterback who holds an offer from Louisville.
"We sent my tape out to a bunch of (schools) and Coach (Jeff) Brohm had gotten in contact with my quarterback coach Matt Bechtel and he just said that they really liked me and would continue to review my film," said Brehaut. "And (then) Coach Brohm sent me an email last Thursday and it just said ‘we want you to be our quarterback and offer me a scholarship.' I got the official letter (Monday)."
After receiving the email message from Brohm, Breahaut had a good telephone conversation with Louisville's offensive coordinator.
"I just talked to Coach Brohm and the (conversation) went really well," Brehaut said. "He was just telling me how they want a more athletic quarterback this year – one that can throw as well as move their feet. And he said I'm the type of quarterback they're looking for because of my ability to run as well as throw."
"I have some offers and I'm just trying to continue to get offers and then I'm going to narrow it down and go to a lot of schools this summer," Brehaut said. "And then hopefully I'll make some unofficial visits and make my commitment in the summer sometime. I see myself making a decision by the end of July."
"I'm probably for sure going to visit Louisville before I make my decision," he added.
Scout.com's No. 22-ranked quarterback in the nation, Brehaut not only does damage with his passing but also with his ability to run outside the pocket when things break down in the passing game.
"I'm probably one of the most accurate quarterbacks out there and I can make plays with my feet when things break down in the passing game," Brehaut said. "I can find a lane to run and just take off. This summer I'm going to continue to build up my mental aspect to the game and watch a lot of film. I'm trying to get my forty-time down also. I run a 4.8 and I want to get that down. That's probably what I'm going to work on this summer."
