Charlie Brewer, who began the spring on a ‘pitch-count’, looks good according to his head coach Matt Rhule.
Brewer injured his shoulder in the final game of the season against TCU and his head coach thinks the rest and rehab has his sophomore signal caller looking sharp.
“He’s throwing the ball well,” Rhule said. “He obviously hasn’t gotten hit on that shoulder yet, so it’s hard to tell what that would be like. But showing no effects throwing the ball better than even at the end of the year. So I think that rest and rehab has helped.”
Brewer who enrolled early, last spring, but now feels like he has a much better grasp on the offense entering year two.
“Yeah I think It’s always a little different in year two, with all the different stuff,” Brewer said. “It feels more second nature. I think it’s going a lot better than last spring.”
Brewer is being pushed by the young freshman Gerry Bohanon, who is in a similar position to Brewer, last spring. The early enrollee has impressed his head coach so far, in the spring.
“Gerry is doing a great job,” Rhule said. “A lot of things flying at him. He’s l;earning he’s making mistakes, he’s making good plays, so his work ethic and his attention to detail are outstanding So he’s doing a nice job for being so young.”
The Bears have three more practices this week.
