The last offensive lineman to come out of Corvallis High, who chose to stay home and play for Oregon State, worked out pretty well for both parties. Isaac Seumalo went on to become an All Pac-12 level lineman and is now a Philadelphia Eagle. The class of 2018 boasts another linemen with similar measurable to Seumalo and college coaches are taking notice.
Marco Brewer is the latest star for the Spartans with aspirations to play collegiate football. Currently, he holds two offers from Nevada and Massachusetts but more appear to be on the horizon including Oregon State.
“Ball State is a school that is probably the closest to offering, they said if I were to take a visit out there they’d offer me. But I’m not sure if I will be able to do that,” Brewer told BeaverBlitz. He went on talk about some of his spring plans, “I’m hearing from a lot of different Pac-12 schools right now. OSU, Arizona, Washington State, Washington, UCLA, USC and Oregon are all schools that I plan on visiting this spring.”
Being a Corvallis kid, Brewer’s access to the Oregon State program is as easy as driving across town. And he has taken advantage of that, whether it be attending home games, camps or anything else the football program puts on, Brewer has more than likely been in attendance. That face time appears to be paying off, as he has been able to develop a unique relationship with a number of coaches on staff.
“Oregon State is probably the program I’m in touch with the most. Coach Chad is like my best friend’s dad so I know them really well. Then Coach Woods I’ve had a number of conversations with at camps and just around. I’ve been able to go to just about every home game over the past couple years. Coach Oglesby and Coach Cookus are always talking with me on Twitter. Coach Rushing came by the school a couple weeks ago and we spent some time talking then. So I’ve really gotten to get to know the coaching staff since they got here.”
This upcoming weekend, Marco will be back on campus to take in the spring game and junior day. He talked a bit about what he’s hoping to get out of his latest visit to see the Beavers’ program.
“I hope to get a deeper understanding of what OSU is about. I don’t have an offer from them yet, but I think it will come down the road. I really want to focus up on some of the details around the program to see if it’s a place that I can envision being a part of for the next 4 or 5 years.”
BeaverBlitz will be in touch with Marco Brewer following this weekend to get his thoughts on the festivities.
