Brouwer is averaging 18.1 points per game this season with five rebounds and 2.5 assists and 2.5 steals per game. He's scored over 1,000 career points for the Generals. He's a 6-2 guard.
"We are excited to have Grant joining this 2019 recruiting class as he has tremendous athletic ability that will benefit him out on the court and on the track next year. Grant comes from a wonderful family and program that have prepared him to be a great fit here at Dordt College and excel in all areas of life," said Dordt College basketball coach Brian Van Haaften
Brouwer was the runner-up in the high jump at the Iowa State High School Track and Field meet in 2017 and was a third place finisher in 2018. His personal best in the high jump is 6-9 and he ran the 400 meters in 52.3. He twice earned top-15 finishes at the state cross country meet.

He is a great high jumper, and his athletic ability will also afford the possibility of the multi event or relays. We are excited to see how he continues to develop."
Grant is the son of Jerrad and Tracee Brouwer of Sibley, Iowa. He plans to enter the pre-Physical Therapy program.
