Clint Brewster to transfer from Minnesota

Posted Jun 17, 2008


Redshirt freshman quarterback Clint Brewster, son of Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster, will transfer for the upcoming school year and football season. Brewster had originally committed to Illinois out of Denver (CO) Mullen, but switched his pledge to Minnesota when his father was named the head coach in January of 2007.

Clint Brewster was a four-star recruit ranked as the 24th-best quarterback in the nation and the third-ranked overall player in Colorado by Scout.com. He was selected to the SuperPrep All-America Team, ranked as the 17th-best quarterback in the nation and named to the Midlands 88 Team as the 13th-best overall player and second-best quarterback. Brewster was also named the eighth-ranked quarterback in the nation by ESPN.com.

Brewster completed 134 of 214 passes (62.6%) for 2,257 yards with 27 touchdowns his senior season and 141 of 245 passes for 2,082 yards with 22 touchdowns as a junior. He was named all-conference and all-state.

Brewster redshirted last season and with redshirt sophomore Adam Weber starting as a freshman and incoming star recruit MarQueis Gray coming in, it was difficult to see Brewster getting significant playing time.

The following is head coach Tim Brewster's statement on Clint's decision: "Clint Brewster has decided to transfer. I respect and admire Clint's decision to further his education and play football elsewhere."
