One in-state quarterback that appears to be on Tennessee's radar is Hendersonville's signal caller Hunter Brown.

InsideTennessee.com got the opportunity to watch Brown in person several times this spring and introduced you to the talented quarterback after the first annual InsideTennessee.com combine in April.

Brown, who is staying busy this summer going to several camps, will be in Nashville on Sunday for a camp at Vanderbilt and will be in Knoxville on Tuesday.

"Yes sir I'm going to Tennessee one day next week, probably on Tuesday," Brown said. "I can't wait to get back up to Rocky Top."

According to Brown, Tennessee has been showing the talented QB a lot of attention lately.

"They are telling me if I have a great camp there is a good chance I will get an offer," Brown said. "It would be a dream come true."

Brown, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound athlete, runs the Wing T offense at his high school, and admits that has slowed his recruitment.

"All the college coaches want to see me at their camp this summer," Brown said. "They want me to show them what I can do."

Would Brown pull the trigger if Tennessee was to offer this week?

"Most definitely," Brown said. "I have always been a big Tennessee fan, like I said earlier it would be a dream come true if I get that offer."

Other schools that appear to be close to offering also include Vanderbilt and Arkansas State.

THE INSIDE TAKE ON BROWN

A big physical quarterback with a very big arm. Very strong, very talented quarterback. A lot of upside at the next level. He showed great athletic abilities in several combines, putting up a 35 inch vertical leap.

Very accurate, throws a great ball, a very tight spiral. Needs to work on reading defenses and playing against tougher competition.
