Brooks Visits Auburn, Gets Good News

Talented athlete Zac Brooks talks about his visit to Auburn for Junior Day.

Jonesboro, Ark.--One of the top athletes in the South, three-star Zac Brooks is capable of playing running back or wide receiver on the next level and could give an offense plenty of options.

Perhaps no coordinator uses his talent in more ways than Auburn's Gus Malzahn and on Saturday the two got together on Brooks' visit to the Plains and the result was good news.

"It went great," Brooks said. "I got the offer and that's what I was kind of hoping for. I was pleased. They've got great hospitality. I hope to be going back soon.

"It meant a lot," he added of the Auburn offer. "It's a great place to be. Once you step in the door you can feel the family atmosphere. I think that means a lot."

Very familiar with Malzahn because of his history in Arkansas, Brooks said that his visit to Auburn only gave him an even better feel for the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach of the Tigers.

"He's a great guy," Brooks said. "I respect him a lot because he wanted to see me face to face and ask the questions. That means a lot to me knowing he's a man of his word.

"Not too many people can look you in your eyes and tell you things. Sometimes they have to do it over the phone to get it out. That lets me know he's a man of his word and he means what he's saying."

With offers from Arkansas, Arkansas State, Memphis, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, Stanford and Tulsa in addition to Auburn, Brooks said he doesn't have any favorites at the moment and is just taking his time with everything.

"I don't really have a list as of now because I'm not sure what I want to do yet," Brooks said. "I'm just going to wait until I feel exactly what I want to do."
