Profile: Dominique Brooks

North Mesquite (TX) defensive back Dominique Brooks put on a good show at WVU's football camp, and has the Mountaineers high on his list.

At 6-2 and 200 pounds, Dominique Brooks is one of the top safeties in the country heading into his senior season. Throw in 4.5 speed, and the mobile, aggressive Brooks becomes a high profile recruiting target for a number of schools.

Brooks camped at WVU recently, and lists West Virginia among his top five schools, which currently include Texas, Colorado, Texas A&M and LSU. That's high profile company, but with WVU assistant Todd Graham's demonstrated ability to recruit his former stomping grounds, WVU looks to be able to compete with those schools for Brooks' services.

Playing in camp games and drills, Brooks displayed quick reaction times, and broke on the ball well, recording at least two interceptions. His size will also allow him to be considered for multiple positions on the defensive side of the ball at WVU.

Brooks was a Class 5A second team all state DB selection as a junior by the Associated Press. He was one of only four juniors selected to that team, and was also a first team all district selection. He recorded 78 tackles and seven interceptions last season, and figures to improve on that number this year in the Stallions' deep defensive backfield.

WVU, along with several other schools, has offered Brooks.
