Brian Lewerke – Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle Quarterback
Commitment Date: April 19, 2014
Why Michigan State: "It felt like I could connect with them really well and I can see myself playing there. It just seemed like the right place for me."
Early on, Lewerke had some connections to Michigan State. He had a trainer that worked with Andrew Maxwell and that trainer liked what he saw at MSU’s pro day.
When he came up, Lewerke liked what he saw and wound up committing.
He brings solid mobility and figures to be a player that can be somewhat of a dual threat for the Spartans. He also has good accuracy on deep balls.
As far as a recruiter for this class goes, Lewerke was the biggest face of it and was reaching out to other recruits to try and bring them to East Lansing with him.
He figures to redshirt and have a shot at the quarterback competition in 2016 with Damion Terry and Tyler O’Connor.
