Brooks’ top 15 was loaded with SEC and ACC programs, as those two conferences accounted for 12 spots. Texas was the lone Big XII program.

According to 247Sports Composite rankings, Brooks is the second-best weak-side defensive end in the 2021 class and is the No. 2 player out of Alabama. Overall, the 6-foot-5, 205-pound end sits at No. 24 nationally.

The two schools in his home state, Alabama and Auburn, appear to be the current leaders for the prized five-star prospect. Obviously there’s still plenty of time to make a decision.

So far, Nebraska and Maryland have been doing things right by Brooks. We’ll see if they continue to stay in the running as he continues to narrow down his choices.
