Brooks is a 5-11, 160-pound junior from Seattle (Wash.) Franklin who is extremely quick, has tremendous court vision and passing ability and also plays aggressive defense. Brooks' shortcomings are that he needs to get stronger, work on his jump shot and raise his grades.
He averaged 17.1 points and 6.5 assists per game last season and will suit up this summer for Seattle Rotary Select.
Brooks is being recruited primarily by west coast schools – UCLA, Washington, New Mexico, Gonzaga and Oregon are all heavily involved. He said that the Tar Heels have showed some interest, but he can't tell how interested they are just yet.
"I hope they offer," he said. "I haven't seen them recently, but they've seen me since I was a freshman. They were supposed to come down a few weeks ago to visit me but something happened and they couldn't make it."
"It's a big-time school and I'd love to go there, I guess. But right now I don't know. I don't have a favorite. I'm in no major rush at all."
