Hundley talks recruiting

In a down year on the west coast for quarterbacks, Chandler (Az.) QB Brett Hundley is fast becoming a hot commodity. Dawgman.com spoke with the athletic signal-caller and he updated us on recruiting as well as his plans for the coming weeks and months...

"Things are going really good right now," Hundley told Dawgman.com. "I have 10 offers and more schools are talking to me and said they like me a lot, but honestly I'm going to start slowing things down pretty soon as far as recruiting is concerned so that I can focus on football and getting ready for my senior season."

One of the schools hot on Hundley's trail is Washington, a school that the talented signal-caller admits he doesn't know much about at this point.

"I get a lot of mail from them and I've talked to the coaches a little," Hundley said. "I know they are an up-and-coming program and that they have a really good staff up there, but honestly I don't know a lot about them right now."

His unfamiliarity with Washington doesn't mean that he isn't interested in them.

"I definitely want to find out more, but I'm really busy right now," Hundley said. "I work in an office helping out my dad with his business, so I'm busy, then I have school and lifting and all that other stuff right now.

"They are a school I want to get to know a little better and then see how they stack up against some of the other schools that are recruiting me."

Plans this spring call for Hundley to head to Houston to see his grandmother and while in the Lone Star state, he plans to take a look at the school recruiting him the hardest.

"On April 10th, I'm going to head up to Texas A&M to see a scrimmage and to talk with the coaches and see the school up close," Hundley said. "They are the school showing me the most attention and telling me how much they want me. I really like the coaches there and feel really comfortable with them."

Because Hundley wants to concentrate on his own skills, he said he is unsure whether he will take any other unofficial visits before the summer starts, but he hasn't ruled anything out.

"I want to take my time, but I really don't have a time frame that I want to commit or anything," Hundley said. "If I get to know the school and feel comfortable there, with the school and the facilities, the coaches and players for sure and the atmosphere, I might commit early, but I don't mind waiting a little bit and seeing what else is out there."

Besides prototypical size -- Hundley measures in at 6'4" and weighs 218 pounds -- he also possesses outstanding athleticism and strength, posting a 4.65 forty time along with a 300 pound bench press.

This offseason, Hundley said he's been focused on his footwork to become more efficient as a passer.

"Footwork does it all for a quarterback," Hundley said. "It makes sure you are accurate and it also makes it so you don't wear out your arm.

"That and my strength are the main things I'm working on this spring and during the summer."

Hundley is a very good student posting a 3.9 GPA and he said he plans to take the SAT this spring, but hasn't set a date yet.
