Brewer Takes In Camp

Connor Brewer said he looked forward to seeing his future teammates on a football field when he decided to attend Texas's camp last Sunday.

"It was really awesome," Brewer said. "All I've ever seen of those guys is mostly talking on Facebook, or looking at their highlight tapes. It was a great chance to get a look at these guys playing football.

"We're all going to be part of the same team someday," Brewer said. "That was the main reason I wanted to come to camp, to compete with and play with my future teammates. Everybody was a great player, and it was fun to hang out with everybody in that setting."

Brewer said he hadn't participated in many camps, and added that it took a little while to get into the flow of things.

"I thought I did pretty well. In the morning I was a little tight, a little stiff," Brewer said. "But throughout the day I started throwing better. I threw pretty well the second part of the day."

Brewer said he was impressed by his future teammates, particularly Dallas Skyline receiver Thomas Johnson.

"I threw to (Johnson) a lot," Brewer said. "He's really fast, and a great route-runner."

Brewer also threw a bit to Orlando Thomas, who spent half the day on offense before moving to defense.

"He's definitely a great athlete," Brewer said. "He'll find a place somewhere."

Brewer said he wasn't able to see many of the other positions, but said that DeSoto offensive lineman Curtis Riser and Mansfield defensive end Hassan Ridgeway looked good in one-on-ones. He also said that current Longhorn Kenny Vaccaro's younger brother, Kevin Vaccaro, stood out. Of the 2013 prospects, Brewer cited Celina lineman Jake Raulerson and Del Valle cornerback Antwuan Davis as eye-catchers.

Brewer said he also enjoyed the coaching he received from offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin.

"I definitely think that was a big deal for me, and a chance to show the other recruits what I'm all about, because I'm not a (state of) Texas (prospect)," Brewer said. "Coach Harsin was able to coach me up, and see me throw in person at his stadium and on his field.

"A lot of the things he worked with me on I've already taken home and have started working on," Brewer said. "It was just a great experience."
