Cape Cod- After posting a 2-0 record with 18 strikeouts in 20.1 IP as a true freshman for the Bruins, Brooks took his talent east to the Cape where he put together an All-Star performance this summer. Working with a low-spin, sinking changeup (1500 rpm), an 85-88 mph sinker and repeating a quality, low-80s slider, the 6-foot-4, 195-pound righthander is a strike-thrower with advanced pitchability. His smaller shaped slider (2300 rpm) plays up to average due to his ability to repeat and locate the pitch. He can also run his four-seamer up in the zone at 90 mph. Brooks is athletic, fields his position well and repeats his slightly crossfire delivery from a lower three-quarter release point which produces a good horizontal angle to the plate. With three quality offerings and a good idea on the bump, Brooks just needs more arm strength to advance his arsenal to the next level.

2018 Area Code Games - UCLA commit. 6-foot-3, 175-pounds, extra-large frame that has a long, lean, wiry strong proportional body. Number 27 player in Class of 2020 state rankings. The UCLA commit shows a quick-to-fast arm that is compact and hidden in the back through to a ¾ slot. Gains ground down the mound to an inline, balanced landing. Incorporates lower half very well. Fastball shows run to the arm-side from a loose, easy action. Brooks' command of the pitch has steadily improved since spring now being able to work both sides of the plate and elevate for swinging strikes. Slider falls off the table to righties and front foots lefties. Shows hard tilting action. At 80-82 mph and from the same slot/arm speed as the fastball it's a potential plus pitch. Brooks shows feel for a changeup that he threw only a couple times in his outing. Shows some fading action and he used it to bust in on righties.
