His Recruiting Story
Brennen is a versatile two-way player who was productive on both sides of the ball in high school. He has been a starter for Plymouth since he was a sophomore, playing both the tight end and defensive end positions. As college recruiters came in to Beyer’s see teammate
, a highly touted kicker, they could not help but notice Brennen’s athleticism. Luckily, for the maize and blue faithful, Beyer was a long time
“I grew up watching Michigan football and I would love to play for the University of Michigan,” he said.
The Rodriguez coaching staff was quick to offer him giving him the chance to make his dream a reality. That did not stop other schools, however, from courting him as well. Beyer has scholarship offers from
and several others.
He finished his junior season with 45 tackles, nine tackles for loss and nine sacks. He then followed the strong junior year up with an outstanding senior season that ended with a state-title run. On the year he notched 31 catches for 611 yards and 10 touchdowns, and on defense tallied 71 tackles, 13 sacks, 7 quarterback knockdowns, 3 forced fumbles and a handful of blocked punts, one which he returned for a 16-yard touchdown.
His Commitment Comments
"It felt amazing," he admitted. "It felt really good. It happened really fast. It took me by surprise. I didn’t expect it to happen this fast." The Beyer family is equally excited. "My family is all huge Michigan fans, my parents, my grandpa, so they were just as thrilled as me and real excited [about the offer]. My uncle is a crazy Michigan fan. He knows everything and watches them all the time. At first, he wanted to make sure I wasn’t kidding. He was extremely happy and pretty much freaked out. He said 'I can’t believe it and good job.' My friends all thought it was pretty sweet too."
Beyer overwhelms offensive linemen with his initial burst off the ball and his hands are so quick, it must appear to the linemen that there's simply a flurry of movement in his face. Beyer has a terrific frame and sometimes seems to be made of elastic as he's able to lay out and contort his body to get a ball carrier trying to elude him. Simply needs to add weight and continue to get stronger to be a dominant defender.
