Brooks Cunningham, Norcross High School
Defensive end (6-3, 230, 4.7 forty)
VandyMania: I heard you visited this weekend for the Vanderbilt spring game. What did you think of it?
Brooks Cunningham: The defense is really good there.
VM: So you don't have much good to say about the offense, huh?
BC: Well, the offense, they have some potential but it looks like all the breaks went to the defense, it looked like.
VM: What are some of your biggest strengths as a player?
BC: Definitely my speed and my agility.
VM: What were some of your stats from your junior season?
BC: I had 99 combined tackles, 22 tackles for losses, 11 sacks and 3 forced fumbles. I was selected First Team All-County and Second Team All-Region.
VM: What are you looking for in a school?
BC: Definitely the academics are real important to me. I'd love to be able to help a football team with my abilities. I want to bring something new to a team.
VM: What other schools are talking to you right now?
BC: Georgia invited me to one of their junior days. I got a letter from Penn State. Georgia Tech sends me lots of stuff. Those are the big schools, I guess.
VM: What school do you think you like the most?
BC: Definitely Vanderbilt. I was really impressed by their school. I can't think of too many schools that have a 9:1 student to teacher ratio. Their football program seems to be doing pretty good. I've kept up with them and they seem to be heading in the right direction.
VM: What do you like about Georgia Tech?
BC: It's really close to my hometown and they have really good academics too. I haven't really visited their campus yet but I look forward to it.
VM: Do you have any visits planned there?
BC: On the 15th I'm going to a combine over at Georgia Tech. I'll be able to see what they have over there.
VM: What do you like about Georgia?
BC: Definitely their football history, like all the players that have come out of there. It's also real close to my hometown. Definitely their academics.
VM: How about Penn State, you said you received some mail from them?
BC: Yes sir, Penn State seems pretty good but I haven't really had a chance to do a whole lot of research on them. I want to get to know them a little better before I say too much. I really interested in them.
VM: What team did you grow up rooting for in Georgia?
BC: I grew up rooting for the Georgia Bulldogs. I was a big fan of them. Go Dawgs!
VM: Do you have any other visits planned?
BC: I'm going to a Vanderbilt camp and a Georgia camp over the summer.
