Bremner Looks Forward To Winning Culture At Canisius

TWINSBURG - It started with a pair of home runs in a tournament in Buffalo. A long ball in a game at Lake Pointe added to the impression made. In between, Justin Bremner gave a glimpse of his ability at the Top Prospect Games.

By the time summer was over, the Walsh Jesuit senior was a Canisius commit.

“After I attended the Top Prospect Games they liked the numbers on my profile and came to watch me play at Lake Pointe,” Bremner reflected about a relationship with Canisius that back in 2020. “They offered shortly after that.”

What was not to like about the 6-0 195-pound outfielder?

“They really like my measurables, my exit velo, outfield velo and 60-yard dash,” Bremner noted. “They think I’m projectable with those numbers, and I hit for power with wood at Lake Pointe and at the Tournament of Champions in Buffalo two years ago.”

A visit to the university located in Buffalo helped seal the deal.

“It was nice, it really fits with what I want to do,” the 107th-rated 2023 in Ohio said. “I like the campus and the dorms and I want to go into accounting and they have that.”

An offer from Gannon and interest from other schools, including Dayton, were there, but the 17-year-old found what he wanted at Canisius and was happy to have the recruiting process over.

“PBR helped me out tremendously with their ability to get my numbers out to the public easily, especially after the Top Prospect Games,” Bremner explained. “That’s when my recruitment took off. A lot of coaches said they like my swing. It came down to the point with the transfer portal there were so many outfielders that coaches had to look at.”

An improved game proved vital in standing above other outfielders hoping to impress college recruiters.

“I really worked on my measurables a lot,” Bremner said. “My exit velo went from 87 to 103, my outfield from 80 to 90 and I really worked on my speed, that helped a lot. I quit basketball after my freshman year to focus on baseball and I really started to work at it.”

While still playing football, the 15th-ranked senior outfielder in the state has had his sights set on reaching the next level in baseball for some time.

“It’s been a goal of mine my whole life,” Bremner related. “I became serious about it at 13 or 14. I got everything out there to reach my goal of playing college baseball. I knew if I kept working hard I could do it. It became reality when I first started getting offers.”

While Bremner pointed to “a lot of coaches from my hitting coach on” as being influential in getting where he is now, there is one person that stands above the rest.

“My dad has been a huge influence on me,” Bremner said. “He’s always kept on me to keep working hard. Without him, I might not have pushed myself as much.”

Bremner is of the belief he can be a major benefit to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference university, which is located three hours from his home in Twinsburg.

“In talking to the coach, he said I can make an impact early in my career and be a dynamic player as I go through the program,” Bremner noted.

A 3.7 student at Walsh Jesuit, Bremner feels good where he is at now.

“It definitely took some pressure off the shoulders,” Bremner said of making a commitment. “It really was a stressful process. Now I’m able to enjoy the stressful part since the recruitment is closing.”

With that, Bremner looks ahead with anticipation to what is to come at college.

“I’m looking forward to playing at a competitive school, which Canisius is,” Bremner concluded about a program that has made it to eight of the past 13 MAAC championship games winning four titles, including this past season. “They win the conference and I love to win, so I’m glad to go to a school where I’ll be able to win.”
