Three-star tight end/defensive end Eric Brooks (6-2, 242, 4.7) from Monrovia, Calif., took an unofficial visit to San Diego State this past weekend to take in the San Diego State/Utah game.
"It wasn't an official visit to San Diego State, but my time there was nice," Brooks said. "I liked the stadium and the atmosphere was cool. I'm setting an official visit to San Diego State, but we don't have a date yet.
Brooks has received calls from Arizona, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, Nevada, UTEP and Colorado. He currently has three offers on the table from San Diego State, Colorado State and Arizona State.
On the gridiron, Brooks and his Monrovia teammates lost a tough game.
"We lost a tough one to the No.1 ranked school in our area, West Covina, on a last second field goal," Brooks said. "We came back from a 19-0 halftime deficient. We fought back to take the lead 20-19 only to lose in the final second."
Brooks showed his grit by even playing banged up with a sore knee on Friday.
"My team needed my blocking so when the game got tough, I went and played," Brooks said. "I wasn't supposed to play at all."
On the season, Brooks has caught four passes for 72 yards while playing on a predominately running team.
"When you have two of the best backs in area on one team in James Davis and Shawn Sparks you run the football," Brooks said. "I've also played a little middle linebacker and defensive end."
Brooks is ranked by Rivals.com as the nation's No. 40 tight end prospect for the class of 2007 and he also made the Rivals.com California top 100 teams landing as the Golden State's No. 80 prospect at any position.
