UPDATED: St. Stanislaus' Myles Brennan picks up Wisconsin offer

St. Stanislaus quarterback Myles Brennan (12) looks to avoid the sack by Noxubee's Jeffrey Simmons (94) on Saturday, December 5, 2015, in the MHSAA Class 4A State Football Championship in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on the Ole Miss campus in Oxford.
St. Stanislaus quarterback Myles Brennan (12) looks to avoid the sack by Noxubee's Jeffrey Simmons (94) on Saturday, December 5, 2015, in the MHSAA Class 4A State Football Championship in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on the Ole Miss campus in Oxford.

The offers keep coming for junior Myles Brennan.

The St. Stanislaus quarterback and two-time Sun Herald Player of the Year landed an offer from Wisconsin on Wednesday, according to Rockachaws coach Bill Conides.

The Badgers are the eighth school to offer Brennan, joining Troy, South Alabama, California, Kentucky, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Wake Forest and Wisconsin.

Conides said the Badgers visited Brennan on Tuesday and left "fired up" about the up-and-coming quarterback.

"They wanted to solidify everything they've seen on film and walked away very impressed," Conides said, adding the Badgers are hoping to land a visit with Brennan at some point in the summer or fall.

While the Badgers don't tend to throw the ball as much as teams like Cal or West Virginia, which run offenses similar to the Rockachaws, Conides said Wisconsin would be a good fit for Brennan.

"What's good about them is that the coach (Paul Chryst) has a pedigree of developing guys who are ready to play in the NFL because they run a pro-style system," he said.

Last season, Brennan led his team to a second straight Class 4A championship game, completing 62.3 percent of his passes for 5,248 yards and 53 touchdowns.

As a sophomore, Brennan set state records with 5,761 yards and 64 touchdowns.

One area Brennan's game has really grown over the last couple of years is his pocket presence and ability to scramble for positive yardage when plays break down. This season, Brennan rushed for 497 yards and eight touchdowns.

"His pocket presence, ability to run away from people and make people miss is interesting," SSC coach Bill Conides said previously. "You have a 6-foot-3 kid who is long, so he looks like he's 6-6, but he's able to make kids miss. He doesn't look like a kid who should be able to do that -- but he does."

More than a year until he's able to sign with a prospective school, Brennan has said in the past he's in no rush to commit and will let the recruiting process play out.

Added Conides: "What's great about (the offers) is he's going to be able to see a lot of different parts of the country. He's not making any kind of commitments whatsoever right now. He's just going to see."

Rivals.com and 247Sports both rate Brennan as a three-star quarterback recruit.

The Sun Herald is working to update the report.
