Coach Corbin Quote: Alex has mature hitting skills and movements which will certainly give him an opportunity to get on the field at some point this year. Where I think he has improved the most is his defensive abilities. He is a future third or first baseman in our program and should be an offensive presence as well.

2017 - Earned the start against Missouri 5/6 going 0-for-3... Scored his first career run in win at Middle Tennessee 4/18... Earned his first career start against Tennessee Tech 4/11, getting the nod at 3B and going 0-for-3 with his first career RBI... Came off the bench to play first base against Texas A&M 3/25... Struck out in his lone at-bat against Central Arkansas 3/7... Made his collegiate debut at San Diego 2/19 as a pinch hitter and first baseman.

High School - Lettered four years on Forrest HS baseball team earning his third district MVP, All-State and Mr. Baseball as a senior in 2016... As a junior, team claimed district, region and sub-state titles... Named district MVP, first team All-State as a junior... His sophomore season produced his first district MVP and All-Region honors while the Rockets won their first of three district titles, finished runner-up in the region, won sub-state and made a state tournament appearance... Won a region title and was named All-Conference and All-Region as a freshman... Won his school’s pre-calculus award as a senior, the Spanish award as a sophomore and algebra award as a freshman... Played high school and/or summer ball with Vanderbilt teammate Zach King, Hagan Severance (Mississippi State), Korey Bell (Ole Miss), former VU commit Bryce Denton (St. Louis Cardinals) Trey Cabbage (Minnesota Twins) and TJ Collett (Kentucky).

Academics - Brewer is undecided on a major.

Personal - Alexander James Brewer... Born 12/9/97 in Nashville, Tenn.... Son of Lea Ann and Steve Brewer... Has one older brother, Zack, who pitches at Martin Methodist in Pulaski, Tenn.... Nickname is Brew... Favorites include: Josh Donaldson (player), Toronto Blue Jays (team), Step Brothers, Creed, Cinderella Man, Forrest Gump (movies), Prison Break, Breaking Bad (TV shows), Mark Wahlberg (actor), mac and cheese (meal), Mike Stud (musician), honey buns (late night snack)... Says he’d be an athletic trainer if not an athlete... Names Mark Wahlberg as the actor to play him in a movie... Lists his oddest talent as solving a Rubik’s Cube in 90 seconds or less... Uses independent as the one word to describe himself... Roommates with Reid Schaller... Hitting a walk-off home run as a sophomore to send his team to state tournament is his most memorable athletic moment... Chose Vanderbilt because it “has been my dream school since I was a freshman in high school. The environment we play in is one of the best in the country.”
