Brewer enjoys official

Arizona commit Devon Brewer took his official visit to Tucson this past weekend. Read on for his thoughts on how it went and more.

Fresno (Calif.) Central East safety Devon Brewer was one a slew of 2014 UA football recruits visiting this past weekend.

"I was there with about 15 other commitments and you could tell the coaches really wanted us to start to bond and get to know each other," Brewer said. "We got to go to Coach's house, which was really nice.

"The whole visit was great because there was just a family environment and I really liked that. Everyone knows more talent is heading to Tucson this season and that the talent is only going to get better."

Making strong in-roads at talent laden Central East High School exemplifies the grassroots recruiting strategy that the Wildcat coaching staff is implementing.

"They do a great job of communicating with my teammates," Brewer said. "Nick Wilson was a big factor in my decision as well. He's a great player and he could have gone to a ton of different schools, so the fact that he was completely sold on them spoke a lot to me about the school as a whole."

While it was a smart strategy to cultivate relationships at talent rich high schools, it was still incumbent on Rich Rodriguez to provide a blueprint and vision that appeals to potential recruits.

"It was really a combination of things that sold me on Arizona," Brewer said. "You look at my high school and it seems that half the team is going to Tucson.

"We all buy into what Coach Rodriguez is doing on both sides of the ball. He's a great coach who has won a lot of games and being part of the rise of the team is something we all look forward to doing."
