Aaron Brooks, a jet-quick 5-11, 160 pound point guard from Franklin H.S. in Seattle, Wash., said that he is seriously considering five colleges this summer.
Brooks, who played on the U.S. Junior National squad last month at the COPABA Championships in Venezuela, told Rivalshoops.com that he is looking at UCLA, Oregon, Washington, Florida State and Minnesota.
North Carolina, which had shown some interest in Brooks prior to the July evaluation period, is no longer involved in the recruiting process, Aaron said.
"I've been talking to Washington, Oregon and UCLA the most, so I would say that those three are leading right now," he added.
Brooks is definitely going to officially visit Oregon during the month of September. He said he'd like to take at least two more official visits in the fall before arriving at a decision, so he's probably going to visit one other campus in addition to the one in Eugene, Ore.
He said that Florida State and Washington are the two schools he is considering strongly right now for that other trip. Of course, he burned one of his official trips in June when he visited UCLA, meaning that he has four left to use this fall if he so desires.
We will keep you posted on Brooks and his recruitment as the fall approaches, so stay tuned.
