Brion Carnes is one of the top quarterback prospects from the Tampa Bay area. Carnes, 6-0 and181 pounds, is from Bradenton Manatee High School. He's been a long time commitment to USF. Despite his pledge to the Bulls Carnes took in a Georgia camp this past weekend, as he headed to Athens for Dawg Night.
"Man, I think I did good and all went good," Carnes said. "I mean I really enjoyed myself and had fun out there. I got a chance to spend some time with coach (Mike) Bobo. He's a fun guy and he really helped me out a lot, especially with my fundamentals."
Carnes travelled to UGA with two of his teammates, one bring wide receiver Ace Sanders. Sanders is quickly becoming a hot prospect.
"Ace was unstoppable there. I mean no one could guard him and there was a lot of talent there."
Was Carnes impressed enough with the University of Georgia to open up his recruitment?
"I am still committed to USF. Right now I just am focusing on senior year. I will worry about all of that stuff after the season. I want to win a state championship.
"But I will say this; Athens, Georgia is a beautiful place. I love the atmosphere, the stadium, and the coaching staff. I had a great experience. If I take some visits this fall, Georgia will be one of them."
Carnes is a three-star quarterback prospect. Last season as a junior he threw for 1,200 yards and 12 scores and rushed for over 500 yards and five touchdowns. Carnes has an above average arm, good accuracy and can make all the throws. When things break down he has enough mobility to extend a play. Overall, this is one of the better quarterback prospects from the Sunshine State.
