Brewer, a native of Scottsdale, Ariz.​, has two years of eligibility remaining.

"After these wild few years of college, I have officially decided that my last stop will be at Northern Arizona University," Brewer wrote on Instagram on Thursday. "I will pursue my graduate degree and have two more years of football to play. I am excited to get on the field again and to finally show people what I am capable of."

Northern Arizona, a member of the Big Sky conference, finished 7-5 last season.
