RECRUITING '07: QB to officially trip to WSU

YOU COULD SAY QB prospect Clint Brewster has been on Bill Doba's recruiting radar since the Denver standout was born. Doba and Brewster's dad coached together at Purdue once upon a time under Leon Burtnett, who is now Doba's linebackers coach. The three old colleagues will have the chance to reunite, possibly in a few weeks, as part of Clint's summer tour of schools he's considering for college.

Clint and father Tim, the tight ends coach for the Denver Broncos, will be hitting the road over the coming weeks. Pullman may be one of their stop in early July -- although the emphasis on these early trips will be to work out at schools that have yet to offer a scholarship to Clint. The younger says the Cougs, one of the first schools to offer him, are most assuredly in line for an official visit in the fall.

"I'm definitely going to go to Washington State and Southern Miss on official visits but I don't really feel I would need to go their camps," said Brewster. "I'm definitely very interested in both places."

WSU and Southern Miss are Brewster's two offers. Washington is one of those who could also be getting close. Brewster plans on visiting the UW, Arizona, Alabama and South Carolina over the next few weeks.

BREWSTER IS ALREADY involved in summer workouts at Mullen High, running drills and 7-on-7s. One of his goals is to continue to put on the muscle, something he's been working on religiously since his junior year came to a close.

"Since the season, I've put on about 25 pounds," said Brewster, who checks in at 6-1, 195. "I'm really just concentrating on trying to get bigger and faster, and to continue to grow as a quarterback."

Brewster completed 141 of 245 passes for 2082 yards and 24 TDs his junior season.

THE MULLEN HIGH standout said it's too early to pick any leaders but did say the quarterback legacy of Washington State is something that stands out.

"The tradition at Southern Miss and the same with Washington State too, the quarterback tradition there," said Brewster. "They both have great coaches and they run great offenses, the way they throw the ball."

Washington State's passing offense was No. 20 in the nation last year, and the Cougs were No. 8 in total offense.
