Garrison Brooks enjoys a great many inherent advantages. He's already 6-9, very mobile changing ends of the court and appears to possess sure hands. He showcased abundant ability on Friday before a large gathering of college coaches.
Brooks projects as a power forward, rather than a center, based on his ability to run. Though not a polished offensive player by any means, he appears to be a solid finisher and should enjoy a size matchup throughout high school and college as long as he's the second-biggest guy on the court for his team.
Even at this early stage, a regional high-major battle has entered into focus.
Indeed, MSU boss Ben Howland sat courtside in the Challenge's afternoon contest, and he had plenty of company.
Brooks is a rapidly rising prospect in the rising junior class whose recruitment should continue to expand and flourish.
