QB gives WSU rave reviews post-visit

CLINT BREWSTER WRAPPED up an important stage of his college recruitment this week. Included in the three school tour, a long anticipated trip to Pullman with his dad, Tim, who along with WSU's Bill Doba and Leon Burtnett, coached together at Purdue. Following a journey complete with crimson highlights and surprises, the Denver QB said a final decision could come next month.

After an unofficial visit tour that included Washington State, Washington and Illinois, Brewster (6-1, 195) said the call on where he'll spend his college career would probably come in about six weeks after he and his father have a chance to sit down and take stock.

"We're hoping to make the decision before school starts," said Brewster.

Classes begin at Mullen High the third week of August. Washington State, Illinois, Mississippi State and Southern Miss have offered.

BREWSTER GOT TO Pullman a little earlier this week than originally planned, arriving on Tuesday.

The elder Brewster was able to catch up with Doba and Burtnett, Clint got a window into the Cougar offense, and both father and son were able to spend plenty of quality time with the Cougar staff.

"Coach Doba took me and my dad on a tour of campus," said Brewster. "I got to throw the ball with coach (Timm) Rosenbach. I was able to sit down and go over how they run the offense. And (my dad) got to talk to them a lot."

Among the highlights on the visit, the Colorado field general said the Palouse scenery and Washington State campus weren't what he was expecting.

"I was really surprised at how nice the campus is and how nice Pullman is," said Brewster. "It's really beautiful out there."

He also said he bonded with Washington State players, including junior quarterback Alex Brink

I got to talk with Alex Brink a lot," said Brester. "He came over and talked with me quite a bit about Washington State."

AFTER PULLMAN, THE last trip was a visit to the Huskies.

"It, too, was a really good trip," said Brewster. "We just did the usual -- we did a campus tour, we sat down with the offensive coordinator. I met with coach (Ty) Willingham and we talked for a while, for about an hour. And then the next morning I threw for them."

Washington didn't offer while he was at Montlake but Brewster said a determination would be coming shortly.

"I should be hearing from them pretty soon regarding one because they were waiting on a few other guys and they're going to make a decision on one pretty soon," said Brewster.

The first leg of his trip was to Illinois.

"I liked their tradition, stadium and coaches," said Brewster. "I think they're going to be pretty good coming up here."

AS FAR AS a leader goes, Brewster said he couldn't pick one at this stage, needing to sit down with his dad over the next month and a half and decide which school is the best fit for him.

"I don't really have any other things planned, I'm just going to sit down here and go over all these schools with my dad and decide on one," he said.
