ESPN Scouting Report
“Brooks is a prototypical college punter with a 6’5” frame. His hang-times and his “A” ball are very impressive. There are very few players in the last couple years who have more punting potential than Brooks. Brooks is the one of the most talented punters in the 2018 class. His consistent improvement has gotten him this far and his work ethic will dictate how dominant he is at the college level.”
