Brooks is a fantastic athlete that is drawing attention as a running back and cornerback prospects. A four-year starter, Brooks started at free safety as a true freshman and then running back since his sophomore year.
Brooks is drawing much more attention at running back, but college coaches are aware of his defensive ability as well. His sophomore year, Brooks had 600 yards in the bag by game five before he suffered a slight tear in his MCL. He came back last season and rushed for 1,600 yards in just eight games, as he missed the first two games due to a shoulder injury.
This season, Brooks is leading the Dallas/Ft. Worth area in rushing with 742 yards and 10 touchdowns in just four games. Brooks has also proven this season that he has the perfect skills for today's one-back sets, as he has 10 catches for 185 yards and one touchdown.
Brooks can bench 295 pounds, squats 415 and he has a 36-inch vertical jump.
Brooks attended the LSU and TCU camps this summer and he will play basketball this season. Northwestern and Alabama have offered Brooks thus far, but he is talking to a number of schools.
"Right now I am pretty open as everybody is about the same," said Brooks. "I like OU, Colorado, Wyoming, Kentucky and Kansas as well as Northwestern and Alabama. It sounds like all five of those schools are going to offer me a scholarship. I can't wait to find out more about Oklahoma. I know I really like Coach (Cale) Gundy.
Brooks is still looking to qualify.
