Chandler, Ariz., quarterback Brett Hundley (6-4, 215, 4.6) is picking up offers lately as easy as he picks apart oposing defenses. He has picked up three offers this week to go with a Texas A&M offer two weeks ago. The word on the street is he is closing in on even more offers this week.
"I have received offers from Nebraska and U of A (Arizona) this week," Hundley said. "I just received my written offer from UCLA today, my dad just let me know.
"It feels real good to get an offer from UCLA," Hundley said. "I'm about to call their coaches and thank them.
"It's a California school and a big California school at that," Hundley said. "I'm going to get on the internet and do some research so I can learn more about UCLA. I've been to the Rose Bowl and that was sweet.
"To have a school like Nebraska offer me, that's a really prestigious school," Hundley said. "I mean they haven't had seat for a home game empty for last 300 and something games. That's a big reward. Their spring game had 85,000 people there. It's a big offer when you get one from Nebraska."
"Arizona's offer was great too," Hundley said. "U of A is a real nice school. I like their coaches and the quarterback coach (Frank Scelfo), he's really nice.
"I know a lot about Arizona from my dad and stuff," Hundley said. "It was a good feeling to have knowing that U of A came through."
Hundley has Arizona ties since his dad played running back for the Wildcats during the Larry Smith regime in the 1980's.
The talented signal was also offered by Texas A&M.
"I think Texas A&M was a big offer, too," Hundley said. "I have heard a lot stories about Texas schools not recruiting or offering any kids out of state. I mean they do have the state of Texas to recruit out of and there are a lot of top athletes from Texas, but getting the A&M offer was a huge one because it is a Texas school, a big Texas school at that and they are a really good school.
"Texas A&M's offense is number one or number two in the nation right now," Hundley said. "Their passing game is outstanding."
Hundley now has nine scholie opportunities. Texas A&M, Nebraska and Arizona have joined Colorado, Colorado State, Montana, Washington, Stanford and Arizona State. These nine schools are sure to have company in the very near future.
"Texas Tech and Kansas State called my coach and asked for film," Hundley said. "So I think they are interested.
"There are a lot of schools coming my way," Hundley said. "I'm talking to USC right now so I think there's a lot to come in the future.
"I think I'm going to Notre Dame's junior day and I am probably going to Nebraska's spring game," Hundley said. "I know my dad, (Chandler head coach) Coach Ewan and I will be going up to Arizona State and probably U of A for one of their practices.
"I'm not sure what other trips we are going to take," Hundley said. "My dad and I will be sitting down and talk about it then figure out the rest of our trips and the go from there.
"Then we're probably going to start laying low on stuff like that," Hundley said. "We started out with a good hot minute, but we're going to relax it down because we want to be ready for the football season coming up and want to be the best quarterback coming into the season so I have to train as hard as I can."
For the uninitiated U of A and ASU have one of the most intense rivalries in the nation. Fights can break out between the two fan bases with hello.
How does Hundley's dad feel about the possibility that he may go to ASU?
"(Laughs) He's coming from U of A, but he's okay," Hundley said. "That's a good question, you would think that he would ah no, but he's really open to me and the schools that have offered me and my choices."
There are many reasons why Hundley is burning up the recruiting trail, but mostly he's a winner and makes plays.
Though Hundley didn't get the starting nod until the fourth game of the season. He still passed for 1,517 yards and 16 touchdowns while hitting on 62.9 percent of his passes. 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.
