His Head Coach says that he is already further along at this point than <a href="http://scout.theinsiders.com/a.z?s=148&p=8&c=1&nid=274221">John Kadous</a> was last year at Salpointe. Kadous signed with Notre Dame two weeks ago. Brinker has only been playing football for one year. He really likes the Cats early.

"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."

Despite his love for the Cats, Stanford is his early number one school. He also likes Colorado State and UCLA.

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.
