Brooks Talks Recruitment and Camp Plans

Terrence Brooks' recruitment has been slow and steady as he sits at 12 offers at this time. Since the spring ended Brooks has attended a few camps and been busy getting ready for his senior season. NoleDigest caught up with the Dunnellon, FL athlete to see if he plans on coming to Florida State for Showtime and to see where FSU sits with him at this time.

Terrence Brooks is apart of the large group of talented athletes in the state of Florida for the 2010 recruiting class. As he showed last year as a junior Brooks is a multidimensional athlete who had 500 yards receiving and 500 yards rushing on offense, and on defense he had 6 interceptions to go along with 3 pass break-ups and 2 forced fumbles.

Heading into the summer camp circuit Brooks told NoleDigest that his recruitment is pretty much the same in terms of offers, but that he is using the camps he goes to to show he is a little under the radar at this time.

"My coaches have been handling my recruitment for the most part but I know I have 12 offers at this time from Florida State, Miami, UCF, USF, Cincinnati, Purdue, Ole Miss and some others," said Brooks. "There really isn't too much going on other than these camps. I did really well at the South Florida camp as they offered me after, and I have seen that I am building a good name up for myself. I feel that I am a little under the radar right now but that is okay because I am more focused on my teammates right now."

Other than the USF camp Terrence has been going to 7-on-7s. He says he plans on heading to FSU for Seminole Showtime if things go as planned.

"The USF camp was good because I got to work at both wide receiver and defensive back," Brooks said, "and I hope I can do the same at Showtime. I'm trying to figure it out but as long as I am not visiting my mom then I will be up for the camp in a few weeks. I think it'll be a good experience for me. The coaches at FSU have been looking at me primarily as a defensive back so I will probably work mostly there. I plan on going there and working my hardest."

At one time it looked as though Terrence was waiting on an offer from Florida to wrap up his recruitment. While the coaches have remained in contact he says that the Gators aren't his favorite anymore.

"I have a good relationship with the coaches at Florida but it is a shaky situation because they haven't offered me," explained Brooks. "Getting the offer from them was my big goal but I cannot have that affect my whole recruitment off of that. The teams that are showing interest in me are the ones I am interested in like FSU, Miami and UCF. A lot of people here have been wondering what is up with Florida but now they are just a school that sits in the list of schools I am looking at."

Look for a decision from Terrence some time during his senior season.
