Accolades: Brosius was named to the all-Western North Carolina team and was The Citizen-Times player of the year. He was selected to play in the Shrine Bowl game held last December.

Commit Date: October 3, 2009
Recruiting Scene: Early on, Brosius appeared to be a shoo-in to fill NC State's yearly quarterback opening. The Pack jumped on him early and everything seemed to be on track for him to come to camp and come away with an offer.
However, an injury derailed those plans and with the Pack sticking to it's plan to see a quarterback in person before offering, Virginia was able to sneak in and secure a commitment after Brosius made an unofficial visit there in June of last year.
The Wolfpack stayed in touch and when Cav's head coach Al Groh found himself on shaky ground, State was able to move back in and land a commitment from Brosius. He also boasted offers from Pittsburgh and Maryland among others.
Why NC State? "The thing is I wanted to be closer to home and I really want my family to come to all my games. I feel like they can do that at State, plus I think it's a good fit for me.
"I've been able to meet a lot of the recruits at games and we have a great class coming in. We are already building that tight bond."
Picked NC State Over: Virginia, Maryland, Pittsburgh
Scouting Report: Very good accuracy on both short and deep passes. While he delivered many catchable passes, at times he it took too long to locate the receiver he wanted to throw to. He needs to really work on making quicker decisions and trusting his judgement a little earlier. His arm is average and his delivery is a little on the slower side, so those are more reasons why he should get rid of the ball as early as possible. - Chad Simmons
