Ranked as the #32 prospect in the Midlands 50 on Scout.com, Andrew Brewer perhaps would be ranked higher if he had more experience playing on the defensive side of the ball.
An excellent quarterback, who could potentially play the position in college, Brewer may actually hold more potential on the defensive side of the ball. Combining great change of direction, athleticism, and will to do what it takes to win, regardless of position, Brewer is more than worthy of a scholarship offer. His newest offer comes from the Kansas Jayhawks.
"I just was offered by Kansas, and was real excited about that," said Brewer. "I've always been a big fan of the Big 12, and they are a program on the rise. Coach (Bill) Young is recruiting me, and while I believe I'm being recruited as a quarterback, he told that the defensive and offensive coaches will be fighting over me."
Brewer plans to officially visit Lawrence, as well as make official visits to Northwestern and TCU. He has made unofficial visits to both Evanston and Fort Worth this fall, but his visit to Lawrence actually came last spring for a different sport.
"I competed in the Kansas Relays in track, and got a chance to tour the campus. I really liked what I saw, and Kansas definitely has some nice facilities," said Brewer.
While the Jayhawks are certainly in contention for Brewer's signature, they will have some catching up to do.
"Northwestern is still my favorite right now, but I will take official visits to all three schools on my list so things can change. Northwestern offers the total package, though, and I know I'd be comfortable and enjoy it there. I like the private school settings at both Northwestern and TCU," added Brewer," who has thrown for 12 touchdowns and only three interceptions through seven games this fall.
Brewer had a very impressive outing against Muskogee this past Friday where he threw for 165 yards and rushed for 168 yards, including a 94-yard touchdown run.
