Transfer Options

Brennan Wassil wasn't getting the academic or athletic support he needed at Kennedy High School, so he transferred to Hubbard High for his senior season. While he hasn't been throwing the ball nearly as much in his new location, he couldn't be happier with the results.

"I love Hubbard," he told "I transferred for both the academics and the athletics, and it has been great for me."

It's been good for the team as well, as the Eagles are off to a 3-0 start. Powered by a running game featuring L.J. Scott, Wassil hasn't had to throw the ball much, but he has contributed approximately 100 yards on the ground while scoring six TDs.

"I think I am a balanced QB," Wassil said of his skills. "I have had a few long runs and I'm averaging about ten yards per carry. I can throw it, too. We are a spread offense, but we run a lot of three backs with L.J back there, and people have to account for him."

Wassil, along with Scott and teammate Darnell Tate, made the trip to West Virginia for the Georgia State game. Scott is a top target for the Mountaineers, and while Wassil hadn't been involved with WVU much yet, he was still taken with what he saw.

"It was sweet walking on the field," he said of his first visit to WVU. "I did talk to Coach Gibson, who recruits our area, and he told me to send him some tape."

Wassil has received interest from Miami (Oh), Ohio and other MAC schools, and is confident that he can play quarterback on the Division 1 level. He noted that the transfer might have hindered recruiting attention in the short run, but that he thinks Hubbard's reputation and stronger opposition will help him get more recognition.
