Brooks Taking His Time
Nick Brooks, a small forward from Robinson (IL) High currently lists Butler, Illinois, DePaul and Ball State among his favorite schools. Right now, according to Brooks, he doesn't have an offer from any of them. In reality, he shouldn't be concerned at this point.

Brooks is one of those guys who usually is around the ball and makes plays. He's an average athlete who compensates with savvy. He's one of those guys who gets 15 or 20 in an AAU game but does it quietly.
"I'll just keep playing and then whatever happens, happens," Brooks said. "I'll have it done before the summer is over or next basketball season for sure.
