Isaiah Brewer is a player who wasn’t on a single school’s radar heading into the season. In fact, he didn’t even realize basketball was something he wanted to fully pursue until his freshman year, his sophomore year is when he decided to start working hard to get to this point and make the most out of his high school experience.
Isaiah is in his second year of playing varsity and has made the most out of his opportunity. He’s a hard nose guard that plays on a well-balanced Arvada West team. They’re sitting at 8-5 on the season and it seems to be picking up traction as they’re ahead of where others predicted them to be. A large part of that is Josh Rogers, James Pelon and Isaiah as all three players average over 10 points a game.
One of the biggest changes from last year’s disappointing season and this one is his leadership as a starter. He’s in a new position and its led to better basketball that hopefully puts Arvada West in a spot to make a state tournament push.
In his senior season, Isaiah’s looking to get on college coaches radar as he’s putting up 12.8 points and 3.2 rebounds a game. While talking with him, he said in order for him to get to the next level he understands that he has plenty of work to do and said he’s already fixing some of those things. One of those things is his left hand as well as his passing, ball-handling and playmaking. Once he progresses there, he’ll surely be a more difficult player to defend.
One of the things that makes him stand out is his ability to knock down the 3-ball. He’s shooting 50% from beyond the arc. He opens up the court and it compensates for the size disadvantage he has most nights.
While he’s not currently being looked at by any schools, there’s plenty of time left to make an impression on a school. I think he’ll be a good fit for a DIII school and he’ll continue to grow He has all the tools necessary to make it at the next level, he also holds a 3.7 GPA which shows he’s not only a high IQ player on the court, but also has what it takes to make it with his education as well—special player.
