Louisville Trinity running back Donald Brooks was among a group of in-state prospects that attended Louisville's Junior Day on Saturday. Brooks, who also made an unofficial visit in February, was treated to a tour of the facilities and an up close look at the Cardinals scrimmage.

"I really did enjoy it," Brooks told Cardinal Authority. "I really like the family atmosphere there and how they treat you like you're a player.

"The scrimmage was real intense. They really get after it and I like that. I love how the coaches do things there. I really loved everything about the visit."

Brooks reports that he visited with running backs coach Kolby Smith briefly and that he anticipates participating in U of L's camp in June.

Louisville isn't alone in its interest in Brooks. Eastern Michigan, Kentucky, Missouri and Western Kentucky will all welcome him on their campuses during the coming weeks. He hopes the visits will result in a scholarship offer or two.

"I'm planning on going to see practices at Eastern Michigan and Kentucky, and then Missouri for their spring game," he said. "Eastern Michigan sounds like they might offer, but they said they want to see in person and sit down with the coach."

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound back led the Shamrocks in rushing as a junior and is expected to be the primary back for the traditional high school power this fall.

Brooks will participating in multiple camps during the coming months, including the NIKE Training Camp in Columbus, Ohio on June 1.
