Florida corner looking to visit LSU soon

While most kids will be partying during their spring break, cornerback Xavier Brewer from Jacksonville, Fla., hopes to use his time wisely and take a visit to a school he is interested in.

Luckily for Tiger fans, that school is LSU.


Brewer, a 5-11, 175-pound cornerback with 4.5 speed, recorded six interceptions and tallied 70 tackles as a junior at Bartram Trail High School.


"I think my biggest strength for me right now is that the game is really slowing down for me," said Brewer. "I've been playing since I was 6, and been playing varsity for four years now."


Brewer said he has received 17 offers so far, but has managed to narrow his list to five, four of which are SEC schools.


"Right now Florida, LSU, Miami, Georgia and Auburn are my top five teams,"

he said. "They're all big-time southeast schools who are known for winning and producing big-time players."


LSU defensive backs coach Doug Mallory has had most of the contact with the speedy corner and the two are starting to build a relationship.


"I like him a lot because he is so down to Earth," said Brewer. "He actually text messaged me today. We talk about just about everything. I'm trying to set up a visit here pretty soon. I know my spring break is in early April so I'm going to come then."


One thing that stands out in Brewer's mind is the NFL talent the Tigers have produced in recent years. He said that tells him what kind of program Les Miles is running.


"They have a winning tradition and a good coaching staff," he said. "I'm looking for a school with good academics, a good football program and a comfortable environment."
