The Grand Canyon State is a much underrated football state in the minds of many football fans, but for D-I schools the cat is out of the bag. Once again college powers from coast-to-coast will stop in Arizona in route to California and other western states due the football talent that resides there.
One of the reasons that the desert of Arizona will be happy hunting grounds is they will be able to find the likes of two-way standout Mikal Brewer.
Brewer was selected all-state and all-region for his play as an offensive guard the position that he projects as on the next level. On defense, Brewer is the starting nose guard.
Possessing a nice frame, Brewer stands 6-foot-4, weighs 275 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.98. He benches 340 pounds, squats 495 pounds and cleans 290.
Brewer is an outstanding student and is very qualified with a 3.85 GPA and 1160 SAT.
It’s Brewers’ brains as well as his athletic ability that helped him receive offers from Stanford, Vanderbilt, Arizona and ASU.
“I will take visits for sure to Stanford, Vanderbilt and Notre Dame,” Brewer said. “I’m very open regarding my last two visits. Vanderbilt was the first school to offer me and that meant something,” Brewer said.
Colorado, Washington, Nebraska, Northwestern, Arizona and ASU are all recruiting Brewer and are in the running for the last two visits.
Brewer is very solid on and off the field. He’s coachable and a hard worker. Brewer has the intangibles that you love in an offensive lineman. He’s very physical, aggressive and loves contact.
A dominating presence, Brewer averaged three pancake blocks a game and had over 30 cakes his junior season.
