Connor Brewer is a big name out west because the 2012 pro-style quarterback from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral already has verbal offers from two high-major schools, Arizona State and Nebraska.
Brewer is not slowing down this spring, either, because he wants more options as his junior season gets closer.
"It just means I'm working hard and I have to keep working hard if I want more," Brewer said at the EA Sports Elite 11 Quarterback Camp in Berkeley, Calif., last weekend. "It's kind of like I got some and I want more now. It's not greediness but I want to keep working hard to get as many as I can."

Because Arizona State is the hometown team Brewer is quite familiar with the Sun Devils and their situation especially at quarterback. He's also talked with coach Dennis Erickson, running backs coach Bryce Erickson and others on the coaching staff to get a better feel for the place.
"It's obviously the hometown school," Brewer said. "I saw them in the spring, they're young, I watched them at quarterback and there's not really a guy yet who's stepping up so that's definitely an opportunity for me to go in there. It's hometown but I want to keep my options open right now.
"I've talked to coach Erickson, I've talked to Bryce Erickson, his son, I've been around those guys a little bit and I wanted to see what they wanted from me, too."
Nebraska is also being seriously considered mainly because of the Cornhuskers' tradition and recent success. Brewer, who said he's hearing from UCLA, Arizona and others, is definitely not rushing into any decisions and plans to wait it out to see what other programs might offer.
"Nebraska is a school of tradition and it's a great school," said Brewer, who threw for 1,896 yards with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions in his sophomore season. "They bring out good quarterbacks, great players and that's definitely a high priority.
"I'm definitely going to wait. I want to see who shows interest in me and then base that off the schools I want to go to and then narrow it down from there. It's going to take a little time to figure it out."
