Army All-American QB visiting Louisville

U.S. Army All-American quarterback Barry Brunetti will tour another Big East program this weekend. After visiting Mississippi State last week, the three-star West Virginia commit is scheduled to visit Louisville.

West Virginia commit Barry Brunetti will visit Louisville this weekend.

Brunetti, a 6-0, 204-pound quarterback from Memphis University School, was one of 90 players nationally selected to play in the 2009 U.S. Army All-American game. A three-star prospect, Brunetti is ranked the No. 20 quarterback nationally by Scout.com.

Brunetti committed to West Virginia in June, but visited Mississippi State last week. Now, Louisville is trying to get in the mix.

"[Dan] (Mullen) doesn't have a quarterback who can do both like I can -- run and throw. That's what he needs badly," Brunetti told the Memphis Commercial-Appeal. "He didn't promise me I'd start. He just said the competition would be wide open and he needs somebody who can run and throw."

Brunetti led his team to a second straight unbeaten season and D2-AA state title this season. He passed for 2,257 yards, 23 touchdowns and only one INT in 241 pass attempts. He rushed for 513 yards and 13 scores.
