Brainy Georgia QB checking out Vandy

One of the top quarterbacks from the state of Georgia is taking a hard look at Vanderbilt. He's also a top-notch student.

 Jeremy Chupp is a 6-2, 180-pound junior quarterback from Greater Atlanta Christian School in Norcross, Georgia.  The son of GACS coach Jimmy Chupp, Jeremy is a double-threat quarterback for the Spartans, a signal-caller equally adept at running and throwing. 

Last year Chupp threw for 1,537 yards and 20 touchdowns and only four interceptions in leading GACS to a 11-1 record in Class AA.  As a freshman Chupp won the quarterback job away from a senior, and has yet to relinquish it. 

Grades won't be a problem for Jeremy, who is also an excellent student who carries a 3.7 grade point average.  Like many coach's sons, he is a true student of the game.

Chupp, who is still looking for his first offer, names Vanderbilt and Wake Forest as his top two schools.  Though he has received mail from some top state schools, Chupp is looking for an academically-oriented university with a Division I-A football program.   He is also considering a couple of Ivy League schools.

Chupp's father, Coach Jimmy Chupp, says Vanderbilt offensive coordinator Ted Cain has been inquiring about Chupp, as well as the Spartans' all-state running back, Micah Andrews

Right now Jeremy says he is concentrating on his studies, as well as track and field.  The versatile Chupp, who runs multiple events for GACS, helped the Spartans to a second consecutive region track and field championship on April 29-30.
