One of the nation’s elite quarterback prospects made his second official visit this past weekend.
Four-star Louisville (Ky.) Trinity signal caller Brian Brohm took the short trip down I-64 to visit Kentucky for the Tennessee game weekend.
“It was a good visit,” he said. “They’re really hospitable down there. I really enjoyed my time with the players and coaches there. Gerad Parker, one of their wide receivers, was my host. He’s a real nice guy. I enjoyed spending some time with him and the other players.”
Brohm (6-3, 200, 4.65) said the highlight of his trip was getting to spend time talking individually with both UK head coach Rich Brooks and offensive coordinator Ron Hudson.
“I got to sit down with coach Hudson and coach Brooks,” he said. “Coach Hudson really took me through their offense and what they’re trying to do. It sounds really good to me. It fits me pretty well. I know they had some tough adjustments to the new system this year – their players have had three different systems in three years – but that’s just the learning curve, I’m sure. I think it’s going to be a good offense for them.
“Coach Brooks went over the quarterback situation with me. It looks like a pretty good situation to go in and battle for a starting job right away my first year, and probably taking over full-time my second year.
“I also liked the campus. I’ve always liked it. It’s a very nice campus. It seems like a great place to spend four years in college.”
Brohm visited Notre Dame on Oct. 17. He also plans to visit Louisville and Tennessee, but won’t set those dates until his season is over.
He was also keeping a close eye on the Volunteers during his official visit to Lexington. Tennessee pulled away late for a hard-fought 20-7 win.
“Oh yeah, I was watching both teams,” Brohm said. “They’ve got a great team. I see a real nice opportunity to go in and be the quarterback for a team that’s going to compete for the national championship.”
A member of the Rivals100 Team, Brohm has passed for 3,554 yards and 32 touchdowns this season in leading the Shamrocks to the Class 4A championship game this weekend against arch-rival Louisville St. Xavier.
His career stats now read 676 of 1,040 (65 percent), 10,413 yards, 118 touchdowns and only 14 interceptions.
