Barry Brunetti capped up a big junior campaign with a state championship last week, as Memphis University School beat Brentwood Academy 38-18. Brunetti racked up over 1,000 passing yards and 600 rushing yards in leading his team to a perfect 13-0 record. Along the way he accounted for 37 touchdowns, despite only playing three full games because his team was so dominant all season.
Today, he received two surprise visitors at his school in Tennessee and Georgia. This junior signal caller will be one of the nation's most sought after quarterback prospects next year.
"I was kind of shocked to see coach (Lane) Kiffin here, to be honest," Brunetti said. "Coach (Stan) Drayton came by as well. I don't know too much about him but he's young and was in the NFL. I am fired up about him and Tennessee now and I look forward to checking them out and learning more about them.

"Georgia was here to and I have a great respect for that program and coach (Mark) Richt. They are always good and they put quarterbacks in the NFL. They also surround the quarterback with great athletes. I definitely plan on checking out Georgia this summer and may camp there. I also want to go to a game or two."
So far Brunetti hasn't received any scholarship offers but teams are starting to jump on board in terms of recruiting him.
Now Brunetti plans on playing basketball and hit the weights to stay in shape. Of course he wants to get ready for next season and make another run at the state title.
"Man, we worked hard. To know that we started in January as a team and it ended with a perfect season last week, it certainly doesn't get any better than this. I want to do it again."
