Brooks has the Florida Gators in his early top 3

On Wednesday, the Florida Gators hosted two out of state prospects on campus to watch spring practice as the Gators continue to prepare for the Spring game in April.

2021 defensive end Dylan Brooks (6-5, 225, Roanoke, AL. Handley) was on campus for the first time on Wednesday.

“It was good,” Brooks said of his visit to Florida on Wednesday. “I toured the school and went and watched practice.”

Brooks watched the Gators practice closely and was watching the defense and in particular the position that he thinks he will play in college.

“I liked practice, I was looking at the defense,” he said of Florida’s practice. I was looking at the outside linebackers most of the time. That will be the position that I will probably play.”

While on campus, Brooks talked to several different coaches and he got a message from defensive line coach David Turner.

“I talked to Coach [Dan] Mullen, Coach [David] Turner and Coach [Todd] Grantham,” Brooks said of the coaches he talked to on Wednesday. “He [Turner] was just asking me how I was feeling but it was Coach Mullen that talked to me the most.”

Brooks also picked up an offer from Florida on Wednesday after he talked to the coaching staff after practice.

“Coach Mullen offered me when I talked to him,” he said on his conversation with Mullen and who offered him. “He told me how good of a player I was and how I could help the team in a lot of ways if I come there.”

Florida was the 14th offer for Brooks already and the Gators quickly rose to the defensive end’s top list of schools.

“It means a lot, I just got to keep working,” Brooks said on what the offer means to him. “They’re in my top three with Auburn and LSU because I like the school and the people at Florida.”
