Another SEC offer for Brewer

Connor Brewer has picked up another SEC offer.
The 2012 pro-style quarterback from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral was offered by Arkansas on Thursday morning and the Razorbacks join Alabama, Arizona, Arizona State, Nebraska and Tennessee on his offer list.
"I am very excited about the Arkansas offer," Brewer said in a text message. "They have great tradition, unbelievable facilities and most importantly a great coaching staff.
"I really like the offensive scheme that they run and I feel that it is very well-suited for the pro-style offense that I'm accustomed to running. I have a huge amount of respect for Ryan Mallett's quarterbacking ability that has been developed under coach (Bobby) Petrino's system."
Scottsdale Chaparral is still undefeated this season heading into its playoff matchup against Avondale (Ariz.) Westview this weekend and Brewer, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound prospect, has thrown for 2,416 yards with 34 touchdowns and four interceptions.
Despite being busy all season with his own games, Brewer has had the chance to take unofficial visits to USC, Texas and Alabama. He was in Tuscaloosa last weekend for the Crimson Tide's matchup against undefeated Auburn and that's where he picked up another offer.
He was thoroughly impressed with what Alabama had to offer and rumors started circulating Thursday that he might have committed. Brewer downplayed that though and said coach Nick Saban told him to take his time and hopefully return to watch some of spring practice.
"Coach Saban said to take my time, that he had no timetable for the commitment," Brewer said. "He wants me to come out for a couple days of spring practice."
In his sophomore season, Brewer completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,896 yards with 20 touchdowns and six picks. He was also impressive this spring at the Cal Elite 11 regional camp.
Fellow 2012 standout Davonte Neal from Scottsdale Chaparral has also been offered by Arkansas.
