"I have offers from Tennessee, Ole Miss, Tulane, Alabama and Mississippi State so far," Brooks told Ryan Jordan of Scout.com. "I like Auburn, Miami, Oklahoma, Georgia and Georgia Tech. My main favorite school is Miami right now. I just like how aggressive they are on defense and I like the area it's in."
Although Brooks has the quickness to play linebacker, many scouts believe he'll grow into a defensive end at the collegiate level. That's where he hopes to play, as well.
"I'd also prefer to play defensive end but if I have to play linebacker then I'll do it," he said. "I just know more about that position."
Sylvester Croom seems to be Brooks' biggest fan. The Mississippi State head coach apparently has made him a recruiting priority this year.
"I'd say Mississippi State is recruiting me the hardest right now," Brooks told Jordan. "They send me text messages all the time and they're always checking up on me."
Tennessee clearly needs reinforcements at defensive end. The Vols will say goodbye to both of their starting ends (Parys Haralson, Jason Hall) at the conclusion of the 2005 season. Two more ends (junior Turk McBride, sophomore Jared Hostetter) appear to be settling in at tackle. Yet another end, freshman Robert Ayers, is currently suspended pending the outcome of an assault charge.
