A big strong armed quarterback from Tennessee made the trip to Knoxville this past weekend to watch the spring game of the college team he has grown up watching.
Hendersonville signal caller Hunter Brown, a big physical looking athlete, and has a cannon for an arm. It appears that he is flying beneath the recruiting radar, a big reason being that his high school team runs the Wing T offense.
"I'm more of a typical drop back style quarterback," Brown told InsideTennessee Sunday at the IT Combine. "The Wing T isn't my favorite offense but I make the best out of it."
Making the best out of things included throwing for over 120 yards in the state championship game.
Brown made it obvious Sunday that he had one of the better arms at the InsideTennessee Combine.
"I felt like I did pretty good," Brown said. "I wished I would have been a little more accurate. I'm not use to throwing to such talented athletes and such speed. It makes a big difference."
Brown measured 6-foot-3 and a half inches and weighed in at 213- pounds. He ran a 5.0 flat forty and he feels he makes up for his lack of speed with other attributes.
"I make up for my speed with my arm," Brown noted. "I have always been told I have a cannon."
While Brown has no offers yet, he isn't giving up hope.
"I will attend several summer camps to show coaches what I can do," Brown said. "I will definitely camp at Tennessee."
Brown got the opportunity to visit the University of Tennessee and attend the Vols Spring Game.
"We made a weekend of it," Brown said. "I loved the atmosphere and I love everything about UT, it was the best time of my life. We spent the night in Knoxville so we could make this combine."
Brown finished the last ten games of his junior season as his team's starting quarterback, he played defensive end for the first four games.
"I like playing quarterback a lot better," Brown said. "I love to play defense, but I feel I have a better chance at the quarterback position."
