Gathering Information

A Pennsylvania quarterback had a decidedly different slant on his second visit to West Virginia this past weekend.

When Brett Brumbaugh made his first visit to West Virginia's campus last fall, he was there to check out a WVU game, but he also had another big reason for making the trip. His older brother, Christian, is a quarterback for William & Mary, who happened to be the Mountaineers' opponent that day. While he did gather some info on WVU, his attention was obviously divided somewhat in keeping an eye on his older brother.

Brumbaugh's trip to campus this weekend had a different focus, and he got the chance to see the football facilities and talk with the coaching staff though a more relaxed day.

"I really enjoyed it," he recapped. The facilities and locker rooms were really good. I got the chance to talk with Coach Tony Gibson, who recruits our area, and I like him. He sees our team and the teams we play against, so he knows the talent that we compete against and the guys we are playing against."

Brumbaugh plays in a spread offense, and gets to throw the ball "around 25 or 30 times per game". He can drop back and throw on the the move, but is definitely a pass-first quarterback.

"I think I have a strong arm and read defenses well," he said of his abilities. "I didn't start playing quarterback until the seventh grade, but I was always throwing the ball in the front yard with my brothers."

Brumbaugh is figuring out a schedule for the summer, which will include both camps and trips to other potential suitors.

"I'm taking everything in and figuring out what I want to do and where I wants to visit," he said of the next few months. "I watched my brother go through it, and that has helped a lot. I know what to expect, and that should make it easier."
