    Update - April 29, 2002: (Jerry Cornwell * TSW)
    According to Carver High football Head Coach Keith Wilkes, East Carolina visited Carver last week and offered the offensive lineman a scholarship. Coach Wilkes said "Mathew will be recruited highly and the first offer is always important." Matthew is mulling over the offer from the Pirates and has yet to commit.

    Brim continiues working on his game. He recently participated in the Georgia Nike camp and faired well.

    Profile Update - April 05, 2002: (Philip Pasternak * TSW)
    I had a chance to speak with Matthew today for a quick update. He now lists Clemson, NC State, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wake Forest as his top teams, with NC State and Virginia holding a clear advantage. Matthew has attended junior day at NC State, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. An early decision is still likely.

    Matthew has been working extra hard in the weight room, having recently increased his squat from 425 lbs to 495 lbs.

    Scouting Report - March 24, 2002: (Roy Philpott * CUTigers.com)
    Matthew Brim (6'6, 300, 5.1) has been turning the heads of most division I-A colleges around the country for quite some time now.

    Its no wonder why as he has impressive height at 6'6, weighs in at just over 300 lbs, and can bench press 350 lbs and squat 425. As a junior, he graded out at over 89%, and also was an all-conference and all-county selection for the Carver Yellow Jackets.

    He also has been receiving steady interest from schools like Clemson, N.C. State, North Carolina, Maryland and Virginia. In fact, he attended North Carolina and Virginia's "Junior Day" earlier in February.

    Most scouts think that he'll likely be an offensive tackle (his current position) at the collegiate level. We'll continue to keep you updated on this outstanding prospect throughout the spring and summer, however reports indicate that Brim will decide before the start of next season. It may simply come down to where he feels most comfortable at during his visits to various football camps around the southeast this summer.

    As of right now, he is planning on visiting Virginia, Wake Forest, and North Carolina State.
