Brooks Drops By Camp

Carl Brooks stopped by Tuesday for one day of North Carolina's three-day camp to workout for defensive coordinator/secondary coach Marvin Sanders. Brooks had a solid performance and is now awaiting word back from the coaching staff.

"It was basically like a combine," said Brooks. "We did one-on-one drills and they had us go through some of their practice activities. And then they had us run the [40-yard dash] and the [20-yard shuttle]. We had 7-on-7 games and that was basically it."

Brooks, a 6-foot, 190-pounder from Wendell (N.C.) East Wake, was among the better defensive backs in attendance.

"I think I did pretty well," said Brooks. "I really didn't get a chance to talk to the coaches [after the camp]. My friend Aleric Mullins, he was there, and he told me after I ran the [40-yard dash] that I ran like a 4.5 [second time]."

Before and during the camp, Brooks was in constant contact with his primary recruiter Kenny Browning, who is recruiting him as a safety. Brooks is now just waiting to hear back from Browning to see what the staff at UNC thought.

Saturday, Brooks heads to Duke for his second camp, and then closes things out at Virginia Tech on July 8th.

In addition to the aforementioned schools, Brooks is being recruited by Clemson, South Carolina, and Virginia, but is still awaiting his first scholarship offer.

Still in the investigating stages of his recruitment, Brooks is hesitant to name any favorites.

"I don't really have any standout schools right now," said Brooks. "I'm still in the deciding process. Just trying to choose which schools are best for me and have the best teaching curriculum."

During his junior season at East Wake, Brooks was a defensive captain for the Warriors and held down the role by totaling 87 tackles, four interceptions [one returned for a touchdown], and two fumble recoveries. He also blocked two punts on special teams.
