Marion wide receiver Blair Brooks was able to showcase his skills at Iowa for a camp during the summer and was happy with what he showed despite not being full strength.
“I sprained my ankle during a baseball game the day before," said Brooks. "I did what I could. They know what I am capable of. I talked with Coach Copeland, Coach Ferentz, and I’ve been in contact with Coach Morgan. They said that I did pretty well down there.”
Brooks had fun working with the Hawkeye staff.
“It is always good to work there and be around of the coaches and their facilities.”
The coaches at Iowa have continued to remain honest with Brooks when discussing recruiting.
“I talked to Coach Morgan and Coach Ferentz," Brooks said. "They said to be patient with it and the time will come. I just have to wait on some other guys. I think I’m going to narrow it down to a couple of schools.”
Brooks is considering the Hawkeyes among his top schools at this point.
“I think Iowa State, Iowa, and Western Illinois in no particular order," he said. "I am also considering track at Iowa.”
A final decision is something that Brooks plans to make late in the fall.
“I want to decide ideally around November," said Brooks. "If not, I don’t have a set time.”
Brooks mentioned two colleges that have been after him the hardest.
“Western Illinois," Brooks said. "I’d say them and Iowa.”
Visits are something that Brooks will be getting on during the football season.
“I’ll probably go to Iowa State, Iowa, and Western Illinois," he said. "I know I have an official visit for track at Iowa. Maybe South Dakota because they invited me up.”
Brooks is up in the air regarding football or track at this point.
“I am kind of neutral at the moment as of now," said Brooks. "It is what I love to do all the time that will factor into it.”
