BREAKING NEWS: Brent Brewer, a former Florida State signee and pro baseball player, confirmed with InsideTennessee.com on Sunday afternoon that he will be on scholarship at the University of Tennessee this fall.

InsideTennessee.com caught up with Brewer, who took a visit to Rocky Top on Saturday, to get his thoughts on his visit.

“It was great, I loved the atmosphere and I loved everything about the University of Tennessee,” Brewer said. “I really liked Coach Derek Dooley and his staff. He gets along with his players and they really seem to respect him.”

When asked where Tennessee stood with the talented athlete, Brewer gave an excited response.

“I’m a Volunteer,” Brewer said. “I was certain after my visit that’s where I belong. I will be eligible to play this fall, and I will be on scholarship at the University of Tennessee.”

Brewer, who has played in the Major League Baseball farm system of the Milwaukee Brewers and reached Double-A level with the Huntsville Stars in the Southern League, now has to focus on getting ready for his next adventure.

“I have to get busy and get back in shape,” Brewer said. “We don’t lift weights that much in baseball. I have my work cut out for me this summer.”

Brewer, who stated he is 6-foot-2 and 205-pounds, will enroll in classes at UT in July.

“I’m very excited,” Brewer said. “I loved the school, the coaches and the players I met. The team chemistry is great and it’s something I want to be a part of.”

According to Brewer, he will play safety for the Vols.

“Two of the schools I was looking at wanted me as a wideout and the other two, including Tennessee, wanted me at safety. I prefer playing defense.”
