2010 Jersey QB holds Rutgers offer

Cherry Hill (N.J.) Camden Catholic is home to junior quarterback Joseph Brennan, undoubtedly one of the top passers in the Garden State.

The 6-foot-2, 179-pounder already holds one offer from a local school and is hoping more schools jump into the mix before too long.

"Rutgers has offered me," Brennan reported in a recent interview. "That's my first offer. I think it's a great school and a great program. They run a pro-style offense, which is something I can definitely see myself running.

"But I still want to look at some other options and see what else comes my way. It's definitely a great school. I'm interested but there hasn't been a commitment or anything."

Location may be something working in the favor of the Scarlet Knights.

"Yeah, definitely," he began. "As far as being from New Jersey goes, that's a big thing. That's where they get a lot of their kids, especially if you look at some of their quarterbacks recently. That's something I'm keeping in mind."

Rutgers isn't the only school showing a lot of attention to the talented junior. Another Big East program is putting some feelers out.

"You know, a lot of schools have come in during this past month. Coach Brown has told me a lot of Big East schools are interested in me. He said Pitt is really interested and they might be offering."

Brennan will be attending an event at Connecticut this Saturday and is keeping other options open in terms of visits. Later he will make similar trips to Pitt and Duke.

"Right now I don't have any favorites," he said. "I'm still just letting everything come to me."

As a junior Brennan passed for 2,400 yards and 25 touchdowns in leading Camden Catholic to a 9-2 record.
