Scout.com live evaluation: Brooks was the most active defensive lineman for a talented Brandon Bulldog defense against South Panola in the state championship game. Brooks weighs in at 205 pounds right now but he has the length to put on plenty of good weight in a college weight program. He is quick off of the ball which allows him to get around the offensive tackles and has a motor which makes him into a sideline-to-sideline player. That is evident by his 131 tackles and 10 sacks last season.
The biggest question is his size and where it leaves him on the next level. Does he have the speed to play linebacker if he does not add the needed weight it takes to play on the next level at defensive end, or will he add the strength and size to stay at defensive end? My guess is the latter.
