Rising junior QB Will Brunson (6-3 180) of Carolina Forest is hearing from USC, Clemson, Charleston Southern, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, East Carolina and Louisville. Brunson attended a three-day camp at Louisville recently and got a good look at the program.

"They have great facilities and I liked it a lot," he said. "It was an overnight camp so I got to see a lot of the school. We did stuff like going to the film room and studying film, like two-minute offense, and thing likes that. Teddy Bridgewater spoke to us and that was pretty cool. The coaches haven't stopped by the school yet but I think they're interested."

Brunson grew up a Clemson fan but is unsure of their interest level. "They've got a big-time quarterback coming in this class so I don't know what their plans are for next year," said Brunson. "We'll just have to see."

He is also interested in the Gamecocks. Brunson believes that Virginia Tech and East Carolina have shown the most interest but does not have any favorites. "I really need to focus on my junior season because that's what most schools are going to look at," he said.

As a sophomore, he threw for 2,300 yards and 18 touchdowns.
