With his team on a huge winning streak after a rocky start to the season, four-star Louisville (Ky.) quarterback Brian Brohm says recruiting is taking a back seat to the playoffs right now.
“There haven’t been any changes,” he said. “It’s still Notre Dame, Tennesse, Kentucky and Louisville. I don’t have a leader right now. It’s still too early to say. I’ll be taking my other visits in December or January.”
Brohm (6-3, 200, 4.65) has one official visit in the books. He made the trip to South Bend in October.
He did, however, mention that he’s been watching the playing time opportunity closely for each of his co-leaders.
“I think I know pretty much where I stand with all four of them in regards to playing time,” Brohm said. “Notre Dame says I’ll be No. 2 right away with a chance to compete for the starting job. Same thing at Kentucky.
“Louisville has Stefan LeFors and Michael Bush, but they’ll probably be using (Bush) all over the field at different positions, and they say they’d like to have us both on the field at the same time. It is a concern, though, about what they’re going to do with so many guys.
“Tennessee is looking for someone to come in and start right away. That would be a great situation to come into, a definite plus. But they may be looking to bring in another quarterback as well, so I still have to see what things look like there.”
A member of the Rivals100 Team, Brohm has led a remarkable turnaround at Trinity this season. The Shamrocks shockingly dropped their first four games this season – largely due to heavy personnel losses from last year’s 15-0 squad – but have roared back with eight straight wins to reach the Class 4A regional finals.
Brohm has led the resurgence, throwing for 586 yards and six touchdowns in the first two rounds of the playoffs. He has 3,148 yards and 28 touchdowns on the season, and just passed the 10,000-yard plateau for his career. His new career totals are 648-for-996 (65 percent) for 10,007 yards, 114 touchdowns and only 12 interceptions.
“My leadership capabilities have come a long way,” he said. “Last year, we had a lot of seniors on the team and now we have a lot of young guys. I’ve really had to step up to get us into the playoffs and hopefully back to the championship.”
