Player Summary:

Brooks was quite the athlete in high school. His senior year, he recorded just under 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns. On top of that, Brooks was also efficient in the ground game, putting up 12 rushing touchdowns.

The Badgers were able to flip Brooks from Yale. He joins a class of receivers with Vinny Anthony and Tommy McIntosh.

Standing at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, Brooks has impressive hands and is quick. His development will be a fun one to watch throughout his collegiate career at Wisconsin.

As that concludes the Badgers' freshmen 2022 recruiting class, Wisconsin has plenty of talent coming in. They open the season tonight, on Sept. 3, against Illinois State.
