Max Staver is trying to turn the corner as a legit Div. I college football prospect.

While the Class of 2013 quarterback from Brentwood Academy (Tenn.) already has a BCS scholarship offer (Louisville), he is trying to circulate film and turn letters and text messages into more offers.

As a 6-foot-5, 230-pounder, he possesses the size to sit in the pocket and run a Pro-Style offense. He unofficially visited Alabama, LSU and Tennessee and is drawing interest from numerous other programs.

"I'm very smart; I make good decisions with the ball," Staver recently told's Chad Simmons. "I have a strong and accurate arm. I think this year what I've really gotten good at is moving in the pocket and being able to maintain my eyes down field. Those are a couple things I thought I improved on a lot. I always have areas to improve. I have a good work ethic."

Staver just wrapped up his first season with the Eagles, including the opportunity to play his season opener versus Sports Next national champion Trinity (Louisville, Ky.). He was surrounded on the Eagles roster by numerous other college prospects, including a pair of players with Tennessee offers — C.J. Sanders and Jalen Ramsey.

Brentwood Academy's season ended with a 37-34 loss to Christian Brothers in a TSSAA Div. II Class AA state quarterfinal.

Max has a sister already on campus in Knoxville. Couple that with being just a few hours west on I-40 from The Hill and Staver would welcome the opportunity to play for coach Derek Dooley and the Volunteers.
