CCSF DE prospect is thinking about the future

It's amazing, but up until recently, CCSF DE Markus Pierce-Brewster (6-3, 225) had flown under the media recruiting spotlight, but now that he's close to making a decision, we at were finally able to speak the talented defensive line prospect and he updated us on where he stands as far as recruiting is concerned...

Pierce-Brewster enjoyed a solid prep career in San Diego, but was unable to qualify, so he headed to Grossmont Junior College where he played in 2010. However, after his freshman season, he decided a change needed to be made and he headed north to the best JUCO program he could find.

"Grossmont was good, but things really didn't work out down there for me and I decided that I needed to get away and sorta get a fresh start at another school," Pierce-Brewster told recently. "I decided to come up here to City because it's a great school, a lot of people told me that, and their program for football is the best."

As a sophomore, Pierce-Brewster played with his hand on the ground most of the season and posted 46 tackles, 14 tackles-for-loss and six sacks.

"I was mainly an edge pass-rusher, but I dropped back a lot when we zone blitzed," Pierce-Brewster noted. "It's something that I did a lot, so if a school wants me to do that, I feel pretty comfortable, but I'd say the best thing I do is rush the quarterback."

For his efforts this past season, Pierce-Brewster was recently named a First Team All-American and the Defensive Player of the Year in the state of California.

"I was blown away," Pierce-Brewster admitted. "I am humbled, but also really excited about it."

On the recruiting front, Pierce-Brewster has four offers currently and a couple more schools eyeing his talents and he's getting ready to wrap up his visits before he makes his decision.

"I have offers from Indiana, Syracuse, Oregon State and Ole Miss and Nevada and Kansas are recruiting me pretty hard too," Pierce-Brewster said. "I visited Indiana on our bye week (Dec. 3rd) and I'm visiting Syracuse this weekend (Jan. 13th) and Oregon State, I have that scheduled for the 20th, but that could change.

"Ole Miss, I'm not real sure how I feel about them, so I'm not sure yet if I will visit them or not."

Pierce-Brewster will finish up his AA degree in May and he will have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
