More and more, New Mexico high school football players, many of them holding college offers, are making a splash on the national scene.

Last weekend, two players from Grants, 2022 quarterback Brandon FurbeeBrandonFurbee6'3" | QBGrants | 2022StateNM and 2021 WR Bryan Hernandez competed in separate events in Phoenix, AZ and Orlando, FL, respectively.

Furbee attended the invitation-only, QBUniverse camp, which included teaching from elite quarterback coaches from around the country, classroom instruction and fast-paced on-field drills.

About 65 quarterbacks ranging in age from elementary school to senior sin high schools participated in the camp.

“The experience was amazing,” Furbee told Prep Redzone New Mexico. “I learned a lot of things that will help me better myself as a person as well as a quarterback. It was a camp to get some work in and possibly learn new things. Many of the quarterbacks were very talented but with my arm strength and accuracy I was able to compete with all of them.”

Because he has yet to play his junior season, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Furbee is still in the early stages of his recruitment. As a sophomore in 2019, Furbee threw for 1,611 yards and 20 touchdowns, completing 60 percent of his passes.
