Four star 2012 QB loves Rocky Top

One of the top quarterbacks in 2012 from Arizona apparently has ties and connections to Rocky Top and the University of Tennessee. 2012 Connor Brewer, a Scout.com four star prospect, currently has three SEC offers among several others. Go "Inside" to see what his connections are to Tennessee, and how the Vols stack up on his list.

With one young quarterback starting and another commitment from another, the signal caller position at the University of Tennessee seems to be in good hands.

It appears that Derek Dooley and Jim Chaney will continue to recruit the best quarterbacks to Rocky Top, giving the Vols a lot of options for the future.

One of those quarterbacks that already has several SEC offers is Arizona's Connor Brewer, who is holding offers from Tennessee, Alabama and Arkansas.

Many might think it's a long shot for the Vols to land Brewer, but it appears that Tennessee is high on his list due to family connections to the Volunteer State.

"My grandfather lives in Chattanooga," Brewer told InsideTennessee.com. "I go to Tennessee a lot to see him, I love the area, I love the stadium and the chance to play in the SEC is huge."

Brewer, a junior, is fresh off leading his Chaparral High School team to a state championship.

"We just finished off the season two days ago, we won the state title," Brewer said. "We had a great season."

Brewer threw for over 2,600 yards, 37 touchdowns against only six interceptions.

His junior season is already earning him some early honors.

"I have already been invited to the Under Armour All American game next year," Brewer said. "Right now I have offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska, Tennessee, Alabama, and Arkansas."

Brewer got a chance to see the Vols Football program first hand this past summer.

"I got the chance to take in a one day camp, it was awesome," Brewer said. "Walking into that stadium was incredible, I can only imagine what it would be on game day."

Brewer got the chance to throw the football around in front of the UT coaching staff during his camp experience.

"I got to meet the coaches, got a chance to throw the ball and show them my game," Brewer said. "I was really impressed with Coach (Derek) Dooley and Coach (Jim) Chaney."

Where does Tennessee stand with Brewer?

"Tennessee is obviously a great school," Brewer said. "I haven't narrowed my list at all yet, the Vols are definitely high on it."

Brewer hopes to visit Rocky Top again this upcoming summer.

"I hope to camp there again this summer," Brewer said. "I haven't decided for sure, but hope to get to."
