Well, it was no secret that Coach Tim Brewster had a college bound son - actually he has a few, but the oldest, Clint is graduating high school this spring. Brewster's son, I am going to call him little Brew, has decided to sign a letter of intent for his daddy's new team, the Minnesota Golden Gophers. I am sure little Brew had quite a battle going on in his head - whether he should spread his wings and go away to college or play for his dad which would make him an instant media star and he would be familiar with the coaching practices...Little Brew chose the latter - Welcome to Minnesota Clint! Welcome! Clint Brewster is a stellar quarterback and should fit in perfectly with the new Minnesota Gophers coaching staff. This 6'1" 190 pound quarterback will be able to propel the new offensive plan which includes more passing and full field usage.
In addition to Clint signing, there were 21 other student-athletes that signed national letters of intent to attend the University of Minnesota and play football for the Golden Gophers. The list includes players from eight different states. The group includes one quarterback (Clint), two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, four offensive linemen, three defensive linemen, one linebacker, five defensive backs and two others. There are eight signees from Minnesota. I expect that number to grow even more in 2008 with Brewster's Minnesota First mentality.
Gopher Gal looks forward to seeing what Clint Brewster and the other freshmen will bring to the table in 2007! Go Gopher Football!
