After four years together at Lake Travis High School, 2017 Lake Travis HS (Tex.) tight end and SMU commit Cade Brewer was thrilled to hear his quarterback and close friend Charlie Brewer had committed to SMU.
“I was pretty excited when it happened when he committed, he’s one of my best friends and one of my best friends for a while so it’s pretty exciting to know I’m going to spend another four more years with him,” Brewers said, “He’s been my quarterback for a while too so it’s pretty amazing.”
Brewer is eager to utilize the chemistry they have developed together so far to propel them onto the collegiate level and ideally produce another four great years for both.
“It helps a lot playing with him since Pop Warner and being one of my best friends I think it helps a lot with the chemistry, going into college it will definitely help,” Brewer said.
Decision-making is one of the biggest reasons Brewer has enjoyed playing so much with his quarterback and believes that will be easily translatable to the next level.
“He makes good decisions, he knows where to go with the ball he knows who to throw it to and he can run, he scramble when he needs to and also throw it out of bounds when he needs to so he’s smart with the football,” Brewer said.
Both Brewers talk on a daily basis and a lot of the conversation lately has now been about coming to SMU.
“I talk to him almost every day,” Brewer said, “Right after he committed I texted him I said ‘I’m pumped dude congrats’ and he was pumped too — just an exciting night.”
Things have also been busy for Brewer with his own recruitment after he picked up an offer from Oklahoma recently however, he doesn’t expect that to change his thoughts about attending SMU.
“Means a lot, just getting an offer from Oklahoma means a lot, they were in the playoff just now and so that’s pretty amazing to me,” Brewer said, “Baker Mayfield he goes there, he went to our school, I know him pretty well I guess, but it’s pretty exciting to get that offer from OU.”
As of right now however, Brewer is still solid to SMU despite receiving quite a bit of interest and doesn’t expect to take any other visits.
“I’m pretty solid to SMU right now, I’m not going to get into that. I have to talk to my coach but right now I’m pretty solid with SMU right now,” Brewer said before elaborating he has no other visits planned, “I don’t think so, I don’t have any planned right now.”
Brewer actually got the chance to catch up with the coaching staff earlier this week when they checked if he would be attending their camp at Lake Travis.
“They were just catching up seeing how I’m doing, they’re actually holding a camp at Lake Travis Thursday so they were going to see if I was going to come to that which I am,” Brewer said, “I’m going to go up there and hang out but just seeing how I was doing and what’s going on with me.”
The more and more Brewer talks with the staff, he can sense that the relationship is only growing stronger over time.
“I’ve been talking with the staff since last summer so it’s getting stronger for sure but they’re going along with the family,” Brewer said.
For Brewer, he is just excited to get up to the Hilltop and test his skills at a higher level, as well as, reuniting with his cousin, Garrett Stotts.
“Just getting started playing football and playing at the college level really,” Brewer said, “Actually my cousin he plays long snapper there but just getting up there seeing what the college lifestyle is like it’s pretty exciting.”
