Kentucky’s top prospect for 2004 has added another scholarship offer and has some new heavyweights showing interest this spring.
Louisville Trinity’s Brian Brohm now has an offer from Auburn to go along with previous officials from Louisville, Kentucky, Purdue, Illinois, Iowa and Tennessee.
“I’m also getting a lot of interest from Michigan, Notre Dame, Georgia, Ohio State and Miami,” he said. “There’s been a different coach at school just about every day this spring, Miami and Illinois most recently. Miami is kind of new for me. They’re telling my coach that they’re very interested. They really like what they’ve seen of me so far, and they’d like to keep evaluating me to find out if I’m right for their system.”
Has an early favorite developed in the recruiting process?
“I’m still not far enough along in my decision-making process,” he said. “I’m going to try to sit down and talk to a lot of these coaches face-to-face this summer. I’m going to visit a lot of schools.”
Brohm said he’s like to make one trip through the Midwest to see Notre Dame, Michigan and Michigan State. Another trip south could take him to Tennessee and Georgia.
“I’ve already visited Louisville and Kentucky,” he said, “so I know a lot about them.”
Notre Dame, rumored by those close to Brohm as a personal favorite, may get his lone summer camp appearance. He’ll also attend 7-on-7 passing camps at Illinois and Louisville if his baseball season does not extend deep into the tournament.
Brohm (6-3, 200, 4.65) is the preseason favorite for Kentucky’s “Mr. Football” award coming off a junior season which saw him throw for 3,777 yards, 47 touchdowns and only one interception. He’s tossed 86 touchdown passes and only six interceptions the last two years.
