Scouting Report on Barry Brunetti

On the Hoof: Brunetti is short for the quarterback position, barely touching six feet. At that size, he is thick through the upper body and very strong, with almost a running back's build.
Needs Improvement: The biggest knock on Brunetti is his size. His height will limit his visibility and passing lanes on the next level.
Most Impressive: Brunetti has been tough to handle on the high school level because of his fluid, effortless athleticism. He has the ability to tuck the ball on improvised or called run plays and make big plays downfield, while carrying the frame to absorb big hits. Despite his athletic ability, Brunetti's best traits may be as a passer. In the camp circuit, Brunetti has shown a rifle of an arm, tremendous accuracy and the ability to make literally every throw on the field. He also features a sharp, fluid release that comes directly over the top.
Conclusion: Though he may have limited pro potential because of his size, Brunetti could be a superstar in college, if he is in the right system for his skill set. He has also proven to be a winner on the high school level in leading his team to a state championship and an undefeated season as a junior, so his leadership skills and intangibles further lend to future success.

Barton Simmons is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He was an all-state performer for two-time state champion and nationally ranked Nashville (Tenn.) Montgomery Bell Academy in high school and was a two-time All-Ivy selection as a safety at Yale.
