Brewster may be one of my favorite hires. His experience and his attitude are going to pay dividends at FSU.
Brewster is a bit of a hired gun. He will get things fixed up, recruit the heck out of the program, but then, likely move on to his next destination. I’m not comfortable guessing how long he will be here, but he pays lip service to all of the things you want to hear. Importantly, that FSU must strive to be the state champions, will be aggressive in doing so, and will do whatever it takes to accomplish that goal.
Brewster has also radically altered the recruiting game at FSU. FSU is offering recruits at a staggering pace, and we will find out this cycle if that approach pays off. Previously, FSU employed a quality over quantity approach–find the few guys you want and then go all-in on them. I’m personally worried about Brewster’s approach because it might overwork out staff on players that aren’t more than 60-70% interested in FSU. I preferred it when we targeted the guys who were 90% in. Brewster, though, is a tremendous upgrade, recruiting wise, over James Coley and Dameyune Craig. Both Coley and Craig recruited and sold the FSU program well. But Brewster has the clout to back up his words. He’s coached at the best programs, he’s coached elite players, he’s coached in the NFL. Brewster will put NFL talent on FSU’s roster.
