RB Zac Brooks Profile

Had things gone according to plan, four-star prospect Zac Brooks would have been in Clemson today when spring semester classes began. Instead, he was home in Jonesville, Ark. waiting to hear back from the NCAA about a minor detail with his transcript.

"They said it's something about a catalog. They've got to have it, something about my grading scale in the catalog from my previous high school, when I was in the ninth grade," Brooks told CUTigers on Wednesday. "So they said I should be cleared tomorrow, so I should be able to come up to Clemson for school tomorrow."

The No. 43 wide receiver in the class of 2012, who will play running back at Clemson, looks forward to getting the go-ahead from the NCAA.

"I'm ready to get started," he said. "It's kind of aggravating, because I was ready to get started like three days ago.

"I'm just ready to go on and get in my classes and get started being with the team, going to meetings and stuff like that."

Brooks, who will major in graphic communications, expects a challenge both on and off the field.

"I'm going to be asking a whole lot of questions," he said. "I'm expecting the hardest work to come my way. I'm expecting a whole lot of stuff that I don't know so I'm prepared to ask questions."

While dealing with a sprained ankle for half of his senior season, Brooks registered 63 carries for 653 yards and nine touchdowns. He also had 28 catches for 414 yards and five touchdowns. In three playoff games, he logged two 100-yard rushing games.

As a junior, he rushed for 1,358 yards on 180 carries with 15 touchdowns. Brooks also caught 33 passes for 276 yards and two touchdowns with a kick return for a score.

As a sophomore, Brooks hauled in 38 receptions for 769 yards and five touchdowns. He carried 21 times for 218 yards and two touchdowns and returned a punt for a score.
