As a sophomore Brewer led the 5A2 Chaparral Firebirds of Scottsdale to the Arizona state championship. Connor passed for 1,896 yards and 20 touchdowns versus 6 interceptions in a pro-style offense.

Jason Jewell of Arizona High School Scout describes Brewer as "Young kid that has all of the physical tools. He really stepped up and was great as a sophomore. Looked calm and poised in the pocket, surprising for a young QB at a powerhouse program."

Connor has verbal offers from Nebraska and Arizona State and is getting interest from the powerhouses of college football. Asked what schools he is interested in, Connor replied: "USC, UCLA, Arizona State, Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Notre Dame, Arizona, Nebraska and Tennessee."

Brewer will be attending Tennessee's football camp on July 20th and has a lot of interest in the Vols.

"I would love to play at Tennessee and be a Volunteer," Connor said.

Connor's mom, Deborah, grew up in Signal Mountain, Tenn., and Connor's grandfather still resides in the area.

"I come to Tennessee every year to see my grandfather," Brewer noted.

Given Tennessee's past success with West Coast quarterbacks, Connor Brewer may fall right in line in Big Orange Country.
