Brewster Ready to Earn First Offer

St. Paul (Minn.) Cretin-Derham Hall running back Kendrik Brewster hopes to earn his first scholarship this summer at camp.

"Recruiting is okay, " Brewster said. "I'm still praying for that scholarship though. A couple schools are, Holy Cross, Princeton, Bowdoin, North Dakota, South Dakota, University of St. Thomas, Northern Illinois and Drake. Those are the few that have called, but a lot of invited me to camps and senior days.

"Because of money I can't make it to many camps this summer. I'm hoping that when I blow up next season, schools will notice me even more. Because I know I'm going to kill at the camps I go to this year—I'm very confident in these next few months."

The 5-foot-11, 192-pound running back prepared for his senior campaign by participating in track this past spring. He posted personal records in four different events.

"I ran track this spring and I will start lifting and going to workouts next week," he said. "My best hand-timed 100 was an 11.4. My best hand-timed 200 was a 22.98. My best 400 was a 53, and my best long jump was 20-feet-one-inch."

Brewster hopes to land his first offer at a camp this summer. He has three events scheduled for June and July.

"I'm going to Minnesota's camp then the Northwestern Chicagoland Showcase and finally Drake," he said.

Last season—in 11 games as a backup—Brewster rushed for 401 yards and six touchdowns on 91 carries. In 10 games as a sophomore, he rushed for 646 yards and eight touchdowns.
