Football: South Fayette's Brumbaugh still deciding on a college

Written by Brad Everett on .

South Fayette quarterback Brett Brumbaugh has had a fantastic high school career and hopes to do the same in college.

Which college that is has yet to be determined.

Brumbaugh will likely head into his senior season knowing that it will be one final audition for college coaches to assess his ability and potential upside.

So far, the amount of interest Brumbaugh has garnered is smaller than expected. He holds only two Division I offers -- Temple and Akron. Pitt had been recruiting him, but has since backed away after recently securing a quarterback commitment from Brumbaugh's class.

Brumbaugh (6-foot-4) has done nothing but excel at the high school level. His junior season was exceptional. Brumbaugh threw for a WPIAL-record 3,897 yards and led South Fayette to WPIAL and PIAA Class AA titles. He was the Post-Gazette's Player of the Year.

South Fayette coach Joe Rossi said he is miffed by the fact that Brumbaugh has not attracted more attention from Division I colleges.

"Everyone gets infatuated with 40 times and what you do in just a T-shirt," Rossi said. "He's a winner and a leader at that position. He'd be a great guy to lead your team."
