The Kent State class of 2015 is finally starting to take shape after picking up a pair of commitments over the weekend. Not only did the Golden Flashes lock up a pledge from D'Andre Smart, but also Khalil Brooks of Mays High School in Atlanta, Georgia.
"I called Coach (Don) Treadwell, and they put me on the phone with the head coach (Paul Haynes). They seemed like they were waiting for me." Brooks, a 5'10 180 pound cornerback stated to Hustle Belt. "They are a young and energized team, and I feel with that extra push we can create something there."
Deciding to continue his career at Kent State over full-ride scholarship offers from UMass, Western Kentucky, Fordham, Mercer, Georgia State, Presbyterian, and Towson, Brooks, who will study Sports Management has the Golden Flashes 2015 class currently sitting at eight verbal commitments.
A tough cover corner, with solid ball skills, Khalil might not have been heavily recruited during the process, but should be able help Kent State in the defensive backfield, and also on special teams as a gunner during his career.
Still helping the 10-2 Mays High chase a Georgia state title, Brooks has played a huge role in the Raiders success on the field all season long. So far this year, he has accounted for 64 total tackles, and three interceptions.
