QB Charlie Brewer recaps SMU junior day, updates recruitment

Billy spoke with 2017 Lake Travis quarterback Charlie Brewer about his SMU junior day visit and recruitment.

2017 Lake Travis quarterback Charlie Brewer is very familiar with SMU and high on the school, but found out a lot of new things when he took a trip recently for junior day.

"I've been up and seen all the facilities before. The campus stood out because I didn't get to see that as much and all the new stuff with the school," Brewer said. "All the new uniforms too. Coach Morris had a bunch of new gear. I don't even know how many helmets they have now, lot of cool gear and jerseys. We got to see the rec center and dining center. It actually looked like they redid a ton of it. The weight room looked awesome and the locker room and coaches offices looked really nice."


The SMU coaching staff has a deep connection with Brewer and his family and so when Brewer gets to visit or talk with them, it's often about things outside of football.

"It's always good to see coach Morris, coach Craddock, coach Loepp and coach Stepp. They're always really good guys and I like seeing them. They're really good guys outside of football. I just wanted to go up and see all them and talk with them and just go from there," Brewer said. 

Chad Morris and Joe Craddock both talked with Brewer about how they'd like him to end up SMU.

"He (Morris) just checked in on how everything was with Lake Travis and telling me stuff about SMU. He was just saying that he'd love for me to be a part of the SMU football team. He said he's going to keep recruiting hard and all that," Brewer said. "He (Craddock) said he'd love for me to be there. It wasn't all about football. It was nice to kick back and have normal conversations with them to see how they're doing and how I'm doing."

Brewer would like to decide before his senior season and will take visits over the summer. Brewer appreciates the opportunity and is looking for a home-like feel.

"They were saying they'd love for me to be a Mustang and it's awesome to have the opportunity to go there. I'm going to go up in the summer for camp and see what happens. I just want to see what feels like home."

When decision time comes, Brewer will have SMU right in the mix for his commitment.

"No matter what SMU will be considered because I really like they're coaching staff. I don't have a set No. 1, but I'm definitely going to consider SMU."

Brewer has recently picked up offers from North Texas, Hawaii and Louisiana-Monroe and is receiving interest from Boise State, Oklahoma State, Houston and UCF.
