If there is a better dual threat quarterback for the class of 2011 Brett Hundley (6-4, 215, 4.6) from Chandler, Ariz., we would like to know who. He didn't take over the starting position until the fourth game, but when he did, he never looked back and now he's one of the best gunslingers in the west.
Hundley made up for lost time as he passed for 1,517 yards and 16 touchdowns while hitting on 62.9 percent of his passes. He is also able to hurt the opposition with his feet as he rushed for 1,208 yards and scored 12 rushing touchdowns while averaging 8.3 yards per rush.
Hundley 's performance earned him all-region, all-state, all-Arizona, was the Grand Canyon State's Offensive Player of the Year and Gatorade Player of the Year honors.

Though Chandler runs out of a spread, Hundley will benefit his senior season by taking some snaps from center and that will help him on the recruiting trail. One of the biggest concerns of schools that run a pro style offense is how a spread quarterback will handle taking a snap under center.

"I'm going to be traveling around because my mom is a flight attendant so I get to travel for free," Hundley said. "So I will be taking a lot trips to junior days.
"This Sunday we are going down to U of A's (Arizona) junior day," Hundley said. "Then next week we will be at Stanford and we will be going to their junior day and then we will be going down to Pasadena for Steve Clarkson's Dream Makers quarterback camp.
Schools that are showing recruiting interest in Hundley but haven't offered as of yet are; Oregon, UCLA, USC, Nebraska and Notre Dame to name a few. It is a very good bet that Chandler high school will be a must stop this spring by college recruiters.
