Hundley Hitting Spring In Stride

Chandler (Ariz.) quarterback Brett Hundley has seven offers and more schools are keeping a close watch on him, and if he continues to throw like he did at the Steve Clarkson Dreammaker Academy, more offers will be rolling in...

Chandler (Ariz.) quarterback Brett Hundley was the star of the Steve Clarkson Dreammaker Academy at the Rose Bowl this past weekend, and the top passer in Arizona is seeing the fruits of a big junior season, with seven offers under his belt.

"There is Texas A&M, Stanford, Washington, Colorado, Colorado State, Arizona State and Montana," said Hundley.

Aside from those seven, several more schools are interested in the strong-armed thrower.

"Oregon, Oregon State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, UCLA, Michigan, there are a lot of schools coming down and checking me out and inviting me to their Junior Days," said Hundley.

Hundley has attended Junior Days at Arizona and Stanford already.

"We were just at Stanford and I loved it," said Hundley. "The campus was beautiful, the coaches, Jim Harbaugh, were awesome. It was a good trip. When you tell people after football, Stanford is like wow."

And getting to more camps and Junior Days won't be an issue.

"My mom is a flight attendant so we can get out to a bunch of them whenever we need to," said Hundley. "If I get an invitation, I'll be sure to get down there."

Hundley said he'll be back in Southern California during the spring.

"There is the USC Camp that I want to go to and I've heard the UCLA campus is amazing, so I want to get out there and check it out. I wasn't able to see them (this past weekend)," said Hundley.

Hundley said even with a good number of offers, no school has emerged as a leader.

"It's too early to even think about that right now," said Hundley. "I still have a year left, so I'm open to everything and very thankful for it. A lot of quarterbacks like to commit early, and I'm still thinking about that, but I'm just getting it down and my dad and I will sit down and talk about it and find which school is good for me."

Hundley didn't even start until a few games into the season, and now he's emerged as the top quarterback in Arizona.

"It's amazing, because it came sort of quick," said Hundley. "I didn't start till the third game of the season, and then all of this happened since then. So it's just wonderful."

Hundley's first offer came from Colorado, when he was a JV quarterback.

"That offer came off my JV film, and that was a big offer for me," said Hundley. "I'll be at their Junior Day next week."

As far as the in-state schools are concerned, Hundley has definite interest in the Sun Devils and Wildcats.

"Recruiters always ask me about it because I live by Arizona State and my dad played at U of A," said Hundley. "They always ask me if I'm going to stay or going to get out. It's really where I'm more comfortable."

His Chandler teammate, Taylor Walstad, signed with Arizona State last month and is making his case for Hundley.

"Taylor is all over me every day, 'ASU, ASU baby'," said Hundley.

Academically, Hundley has a 3.9 GPA and is a National Honor Society member.
