Just read on another site that Brooks is going to prep school because Izzo wants him too,any info on this???

Obviously the Izzo stuff will never be confirmed and is only conjecture. But the prep school part of the rumor has legs.

Sounding like Michigan St. and IU are the frontrunners, but his recruitment is just getting started.

Kids go prep route for a variety of reasons. I admit leaving team during season makes it sound like it's personal between family and coach or someone else there? If it wasn't personal he could leave in March at end of season. Leaving now?

Ed is as close as anyone can be on this one. I like where we stand now but as previous poster mentioned. Just getting started.

I don't like the fact that he quit on his team during the middle of the season. To me if this is his character then we should pass on him.  I have watched him a couple of times and really was not overly impressed with this game.  With Having Smith, Hunter and Anderson I don't think losing Brooks would be a big loss.

Absolutely. Anderson passed on transferring because he didn’t want to bail on his teammates. That’s the kind of player I want to see at IU. I don’t care if Brooks is the second coming of LBJ; he can go elsewhere. It’s hard to have a team if players can’t trust each other.

Of course, this is all assuming the rumors/reports are true.

Geez...pump the brakes a little. Let's say he does transfer to a prep school.  All we have regarding motive and circumstances is pure speculation. We need to have a lot more information before Books is labled as a bad teammate.

Here's the thing I don't get and hopefully someone from Fort Wayne can help us out. His Dad is an assistant coach on his team right? If he is and he still pulls his kid 2 weeks from sectionals? Wow.

Brooks practiced with his high school team last eve.  Maybe the differences have been worked out.

Come on Fort Wayne Hoosiers. Feed us the info...someone has to know what's up!

Haven't heard anything other than rumors ranging from prep school to grades to disciplinary action.  Unfortunately, I have no North Side ties.

Hard to say what's going on.  It's just as possible that his coach heard he was considering prep school next year and told him to go now trying to be a tough guy.  

We don't have any idea what's going on and even if he goes to prep school, it would be conjecture at best to draw negative conclusions at this point.
