Brendan Keeney is still only receiving letters from colleges but that will probably change over the course of the next year.
The 2012 pro-style quarterback from Granite Bay, Calif., is putting up spectacular numbers in his junior season and is already hearing from some major programs. Offers might be on the way.
Arizona, Oregon State, Stanford and Nebraska are involved with Keeney, who has thrown for about 1,370 yards with 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions this season but maybe no school is showing more interest than LSU. The Tigers are sending on average more than one letter per day.

"I get about eight letters a week from LSU," Keeney said. "They send a bunch of stuff to the school. It's like, 'Wow, how many letters did they send this week?'"
No verbal offers have come yet for Keeney, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound prospect, but it's still early in his recruitment so he's not too concerned. This summer he plans to stop at a bunch of school camps and wants to attend NIKE camps as well.
Those exposure camps helped his friend, Rocklin's Jimmy Laughrea, get an offer from Boise State so Keeney is excited to throw there as well. Since no programs have offered yet Keeney said he's open to all possibilities.
"It's all open," Keeney said. "There hasn't been more than just letters and maybe a few e-mails. I haven't really talked to coaches yet and they haven't really made an effort to get a hold of me yet.
"When I talk to some coaches they're probably going to want me to go to their camps so I'll probably just camp-hop a little bit. I want to meet all the coaches. I've heard a lot of good things about the NIKE camps and that sounded really cool. My friend Jimmy Laughrea, who's going to Boise State, got a lot of interest after that."
Granite Bay is 5-2 this season and faces Loomis (Calif.) Del Oro this weekend. In two weeks, Keeney will face Laughrea as Granite Bay visits Rocklin.
