Over the weekend, the Florida Gators coaching staff handed out a few offers to underclassmen prospects.

Brooks admits that picking up an offer from Florida is a big one because of the position he plays and the history of the Gators.

“I’m just so honored and humbled to be offered by Florida,” he said on what the offer means to him. “They’re one of the top schools to be known as DBU and I got excited when they gave me the offer.”

Defensive backs coach Torrian Gray explained to Brooks where the Gators see him playing on defense and what they like about his game.

“He mentioned that he sees me competing at corner,” Brooks said on where Gray sees him playing. “Most of the coaches like the fact that I’m a long, fast and I’m aggressive with good coverage skills.”

Brooks has yet to meet Gray but he does know a few things about the coach’s history coaching his position.

“I think his history is amazing,” he said on Gray’s history coaching the position. “He’s been coaching for around 20 years now and produced strong defenses for many teams in the NFL and college. He for sure knows how to make things happen.”
