One of the reasons that I've been so excited about Brewster as a head coach is that he's talked about recruiting and the importance of recruiting since day one... something that the previous coaching staff rarely mentioned. Specifically he's mentioned keeping in-state talent home, and he put his money where his mouth is early on with a strong verbal commitment from Champlin Park Senior Sam Maresh, a 4-star defensive prospect.

Today Sid has some comments from Brew in regards to recruiting. Showing again that recruiting is constantly on his mind, Brewster talks about the response to recruiting, and a little bit about the start that Mac Brown had at North Carolina, starting out 2-20 in his first two seasons.

I don't remember there ever being this kind of excitement and hype regarding recruiting at Minnesota. It's a year round process at most schools. It is part of the culture of football to bring in prospects all year and sell them on your program. Brewster is doing a great job of this... despite a poor season on the field.
