RECRUITING '07: Cougs offer third quarterback

THE SON OF A college and NFL coach, Clint Brewster has spent most of his years in college towns down south and back east. But that doesn't mean he doesn't know his WSU history. Wednesday, after the Cougar coaching staff let the Denver standout know they'd like him to spend four years in Pullman, he showed a ready familiarity with signal calling position at Quarterback U.

Say this for him, Brewster (6-1, 190, 4.7) shows up well on film, with an especially accurate touch on the mid-to-long range ball.

"I got the phone call yesterday from Coach Doba," Brewster said of his scholarship offer from WSU. "That was the first time I had talked to them -- they said they had evaluated my highlight tape and they really liked it."

There are over 10 minutes of video on the signal caller at storied Mullen High available on Brewster's player page.

Brewster is the third known quarterback offered by Washington State, joining Kennewick's Jason Munns and Anaheim's Dan Klein. Versatile athlete Kellen Kiilsgaard is classified as a QB by Scout but has been offered by WSU as a receiver.

CLINT'S FATHER, TIM, has held coaching posts the past 18 years at North Carolina and Texas, and NFL tenures at San Diego and Denver, where he's entering his second year as the Broncos tight ends coach. But Brewster knows a little about the Northwest and Quarterback U as well.

"I'm excited, with Washington State being in the Pac-10 and the way they run their offense," said Brewster. "They've had some really successful quarterbacks in Drew Bledsoe and Ryan Leaf."

Brewster said if he feels the right situation comes up, he'd make an early verbal commitment but doesn't know enough about the schools to this point.

"I'm looking for where I'll be most comfortable at and where they throw the football and location," said Brewster.

He and his dad plan on taking some unofficial visits in June but has not settled on the schools.

IN ADDITION TO the Cougs, Brewster holds an offer from Southern Miss and is hearing from South Carolina, Tennessee, Oregon, Washington and Texas Tech.

"My top five? I'd have to go with Tennessee, South Carolina, Texas Tech, Washington and Washington State," said Brewster. "I don't have a leader right now. I'm wide open in the process. I'm open to any school."

AS A JUNIOR, Brewster completed 141 of 245 passes for 2082 yards and 24 TDs. Brother Nolan is also a safety at Mullen, racking up 44 tackles his sophomore season in 2005.

The brothers have been ball boys and on the college sidelines for more years than they count, moving up the corporate ladder to become "headset cord holders" this past season in the NFL. But the real prize has come on days other Sunday.

"The biggest thing is just being around the game and the players my whole life," said Brewster. "I've gotten to work with Denver's quarterbacks coach (Jeremy Bates), who's helped me a lot with my footwork."
