From Orlando, Florida, Brewster earned All-American honors by USA Today, Parade, and EA Sports. He was regarded as a 5-star prospect by Scout.com, and considered the #1 center in the class of 2008. He committed to the Ohio State University.
Brewster was a rock for the Buckeyes offensive line during his college career. He made 49 consecutive starts, the 2nd longest streak in school history, and fell one shy of tying the all-time school record of 50. He earned All-American honors, 1st-team All-Big Ten, and was a finalist for the Rimmington Trophy. He was also a team captain, and awarded the Jim Parker Award for the team’s most outstanding offensive lineman.
Sports Illustrated thought Brewster would have been the first center drafted in the 2011 NFL Draft had he opted to enter; instead, Brewster decided to play his senior year and unfortunately did not get drafted. Brewster quickly signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars and earned a starting gig before breaking his hand and being placed on injured reserve. He also has stints with the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints.
In 2017, Brewster participated in The Spring League’s inaugural season in order to showcase his skills against elite competition in front of pro scouts.
