Clint Brewster to Play for Dad at Minnesota

Clint Brewster, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound quarterback from Denver (CO) Mullen who committed to Illinois in the fall, decided to verbal to Minnesota and play for his father, Tim Brewster, the new Gopher football head coach, according to sources close to the program.

Clint Brewster led Mullen to a 13-1 mark this season. They were ranked No. 17 in the country before Columbine upset Mullen 13-10 to win its fourth Class 5A state championship at Invesco Field at Mile High. Brewster finished with 129 yards on 7-of-12 passing with one interception in the title game.

Five players from the Mullen offense made Division I-A commitments. Steve Watson, who was thought to be headed to Michigan, visited Minnesota earlier this week. Watson's father, also named Steve Watson, is a former Broncos player and current Denver receivers coach where he coached alongside Tim Brewster, the new Minnesota head man. Mullen is coached by long-time Denver Broncos standout wide receiver Dave Logan.

Mullen teammate Kyle Theret committed to Minnesota this week and visited the campus this weekend.
