While Colt Brennan was a walk-on to Hawaii, that doesn’t mean he didn’t have offers coming out of junior college.
As noted by ESPN.com, Brennan actually had several scholarship offers — including San Jose State, who Colt will play this Friday:
“I was embarrassed,” Brennan said. “I wanted to get away and then come back a new man, somebody different, somebody new. Hawaii really presented that to me.” Brennan had scholarship offers from five or six schools, including San Jose State, where his cousin, Brent, served as wide receivers coach. Jones didn’t offer a scholarship but rather a promise: to make Brennan the first quarterback selected in the NFL draft.
As they say, the rest is history.
