On Wednesdays we feature an in-state prospect who could be flying under the radar of college coaches. This week's UTR football prospect is Hot Springs’ Malik Brewer.

Coach Darrell Burnett: “Very explosive kid with great work ethic. Division-I athlete who can succeed at many positions on the field. Energy is always good on and off the field. Will be heavily recruited because he’s showing he’s not just a running back, but inside wide receiver, outside wide receiver or defensive back.”
