40 time: 5.7
From: Tucson, Arizona
High School: Salpointe
"I have met their new coach and he is a real cool guy," said Brinker of Mike Stoops. "He turned it around at Oklahoma and he will probably turn it around here. I have lived here all my life and I love the U of A."
Ian says his parents prefer the Bruins and Cardinal because of the academics. Ian is well equipped in that area as he carries a 3.8 core GPA and scored a 1300 on his SAT.
Brinker plans on making the Nike Camp at Texas A&M and the UA and UCLA team camps this summer.
When asked to describe his strengths on the field Brinker responded, "My vision and ability to make quick decisions. I can pass block pretty good and I am a smart player."
Ian's coach also has some lofty praise for him.
Head Coach Dennis Bene at Salpointe says, "He is really just a physical player. He is bright and he is also a converted basketball player. Last year was his first full year as a football player so his best football is without a doubt, ahead of him. Ian really has a mean streak to him."
He was a first team all-conference selection as a junior.
Brinker would like to major in Psychology.
