Mike Brewster

Center | Ohio State

Brewster has lived up to his recruiting hype from the moment he set foot on Ohio State's campus. He entered the lineup in the fourth game of his freshman year and hasn't relinquished the spot, starting the past 36 games.

After earning first-team freshman All-America honors in 2008, Brewster was the only junior center to be a finalist for the Rimington Trophy last season, when he also earned first-team All-Big Ten honors from the media. Brewster anchors a new-look Buckeyes line this year and will provide veteran leadership for a team needing guidance while facing some unique challenges.
