Status quo for Cali TE

Ericbrooksnike200
Things are pretty status quo on the recruiting front for Monrovia tight end Eric Brooks. The athlete entered the season with three scholarship offers and that's where things still remain.
Brooks, 6-1 245 pounds is one of the state's top two way players lining up at both tight end and defensive end. He's a big target at tight end who shows very well on film. He has good hands, runs well after the catch and is extremely hard to bring down in the open field.
As a junior, Brooks caught 34 balls for 301 yards and three touchdowns but has been used more as a blocker this season.
"We're a really good running team so we haven't thrown it much this season," Brooks said. "Not just to me, we haven't thrown much period but I'm cool with it, we have some real good running backs and we're winning so as long as we're winning, I'll do whatever the team needs."
On the recruiting front, Brooks picked up early offers from San Diego State, Colorado State and Arizona State.
"Those are still my offers," Brooks said. "San Diego State is recruiting me the hardest by far and I really like them a lot. I took a visit down there a few weeks back and it's a very nice area. If I had to decide now, it would be with them but I'm not ready to make a decision, I want to take my visits before committing.
"Along with those schools, I've also gotten calls from Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State and UTEP. I'm not sure how many of my trips I'll take but I definitely want to take a couple. I'm just waiting to see who else offers me and then I'll take them after the season most likely."
