It’s been a big couple of years for the Wyomissing High School football program when it comes to recruiting.
In the class of 2023, Wyomissing produced four-star offensive tackle Jven Williams, who committed to Penn State.
They’re not done as they have another lineman in their program that’s on the same trajectory as Williams.
2024 offensive tackle/defensive lineman Caleb Brewer (6-foot-6, 290 pounds) is starting to get the attention of Power Five programs. Last night, Brewer’s newest offer came from Cory Sanders and Pitt. The Panthers join Maryland and Boston College as Brewer’s Power Five offers.
Back in 2021, Pitt was the first program to offer Williams a scholarship, who then went on to see his recruiting skyrocket. The Panthers are back at Wyomissing High School hoping to have better luck with Brewer, who projects as a prototypical offensive tackle.

“Up until last night, I haven’t talked with the Pitt coaches, they been communicating with my head coach,” Brewer told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “So, I didn’t really know that Pitt was this interested in me. Last night, my coach messaged me to call him ASAP and told me that I had to call (Pitt) right away, which I did and that’s when they offered me.
“At the beginning of our conversation, they were like we’re going to offer you, and I told them that I was very excited about that, and they wanted to know why. I told them because you guys have great academics and a great football program, which is a great combination to have. I also told them I really liked that they have a great engineering program, and they started telling me more about that.
“I’m very excited with where my recruiting is at right now. It’s early so I’m keeping my opportunities open but right now I think Pitt is on the top of my list. But it’s early and I’m excited about everything.”
At the start of the summer, Brewer wasn’t exactly sure where he stood with college programs, but his coaches told him to be patient and that the offers would come. They were right because at the end of September, Maryland was the first school to offer, and a handful of others have followed.
“My coaches were telling me that I would be getting a lot of attention from coaches,” said Brewer. “They told me that the same thing happened with (Jven Williams) and his recruiting last year, so I was kind of expecting it. My coaches told me that I could do the same thing that Jven did. I didn’t know that things would go this fast. I thought that after the season I could possibly get some offers in the winter, but I didn’t think it would be like this already.”
Brewer tells PSN that a big strength of his game is his quickness for being such a big player. A lot of that no doubt comes from the fact that he also is an accomplished high school wrestler.

Brewer would like to get out and start making some unofficial visits but told PSN that it’s been hard because his team’s high school games are played on Saturday.
