FRESH OFF AN IMPRESSIVE performance at one of the regional Elite 11 quarterback workouts, Denver prep star Clint Brewster will be taking an unofficial trip to Pullman this week. He'll be joined by his dad Tim, a long-time college and NFL assistant who once worked with Bill Doba and Leon Burtnett at Purdue. Brewster appears to be one of the Cougs' top targets this recruiting season.
Out of storied Mullen High, Brewster plans to arrive at Washington State on Thursday, right on the heels of the Cougars' summer youth camp. The WSU camp runs through Wednesday. Before that, he saod he'll visit Illinois on Wednesday, then it's off to Wazzu followed by a stop in Seattle Friday to visit Washington before returning home Saturday.
The 6-1, 195-pound Brewster holds offers from the Cougars and Southern Miss.
BACK FROM NEVADA
after participating in the final Elite 11 regional workout event of the year, Brewster said he felt the experience went well. Another quarterback, Washington State's Arkelon Hall
, performed so well at the Vegas event in 2004 he received one of the final 11 invites to the national Elite 11 Quarterback Camp.
"I thought I did really well in the footwork drills, I've been practicing on them for awhile," said Brewster.
After this week, Brewster will go back to his summer workouts, running drills and 7-on-7s. Some of his goals include working on his speed, continuing to sharpen his fundamentals and to put on more muscle, despite having already added about about 25 pounds since the end of his junior season.

threw for 2,082 yards on 141-of-245 passing. He tossed 24 TD passes his junior season.
Brewster shows up well on film with an especially accurate touch spinning the mid-to-long range ball. There are over 10 minutes of video highlights available on Brewster's player page.

Although he's lived in college towns in North Carolina and Texas most of his life, Brewster knows his Cougar football and a little something about the quarterback history at WSU. "I'm excited, with Washington State being in the Pac-10 and the way they run their offense," Brewster told Cougfan.com last month. "They've had some really successful quarterbacks in Drew Bledsoe and Ryan Leaf."
Tim Brewster is the tight ends coach for the Denver Broncos. He's held 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 with the Broncos. Brother Nolan is a safety at Mullen, racking up 44 tackles his sophomore season in 2005.
