Brooks was offered by Maryland, Florida, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, before narrowing his list to two recently. He noted that the Virginia Tech Hokies and Florida Gators are his final two choices.
“It’s down to Tech and Florida,” Brooks noted on Monday evening. “I like Tech because they’re a good in-state powerhouse and the class is looking real good. They’ve got a lot top recruits coming. They’re looking real good.”
