I can't see it.
Admittedly, I haven't seen a lot of him. Only because every time I tune into a UVA game, he isn't on the field for one reason or another. And the times I have seen him, he's relatively invisible.
Now, he has great measureables (6-4 250) and athletic ability, but I just don't think he's an impressive football player.
I was eager to watch the UVA/Minn game just to see Brooks play, but surprise.....he's not playing......again.
Now, maybe someone with more knowledge of the player can enlighten me. But I would have nothing to do with him on the first day, assuming he decides to leave school early (which, IMO, he shouldn't do). If he leaves early, and is there on the second day, then let's take him.
Brooks reminds me a lot of Arrington: impressive specimen, great athletcism, only shows flashes of greatness.
Sure he's good for the big hit or the Sportscenter play, but what about the other 50 odd plays when he's on the field? Where'd he go?
