Marcel Brooks ends All-American Bowl with impressive showing
free 24/7 article:

quote:

The one that generally stole the show was Flower Mound (Tex.) Marcus outside linebacker Marcel Brooks, who led all players with seven tackles including a tackle for loss. The impressive performance was an exclamation point on a week that had Brooks standing out overall as he's squarely on five-star watch in the final 247Sports rankings.
quote:

Offensive guard Kardell Thomas, who started next to fellow LSU signee Charles Turner for the West, said that he felt he staked his claim to the No. 1 offensive guard in the country spot.


It was quite the week for LSU's bunch of signees in the 2019 All-American Bowl on Saturday

Awesome post.

This is the second time I've seen Marcel with that same goofy smile in a recent photo...not sure he's doing it on purpose now. Could be epic over the next few years...like RR's plain face.

Turner certainly looks heavier than 240lbs, by the way...weird.

If he wears that smile while making scoop and scores then it’ll be a go

Even if he doesn't, the gif must be made...we have at least two examples of it already.

Brooks this week is a prime example of the subjectiveness of hs evals.

247 applauded him all week. More about the great speed and the burst as a blitzer but overall an excellent week.

Rivals glowed about him a bit during the week and in one review article said he was goid all week and the game while in another(different writer) said he was great in the game but absent all week.

Have to always remember that those rankings are all amatuer opinions. Some guys better than others but none are experts. Fans mostly

Is Marcel expected to be a edge rusher? I think he can be an inside 3-4 LB or a pass rusher on 3rd down. Either way he is explosive and i think he will play early opposite of Chaisson just because we need more of a presence outside next year

Divinity wasn't bad but there is definitely a higher ceiling playing Brooks early, he is a lot better athlete. Also looking forward to Stevens playing close to line of scrimmage just getting more reps either at S or LB

I think the plan should be to put 15-25lbs of muscle on him over the next 2 years...he gets there, he'll be the field all the time.

I do think he has the speed for safety, too, though...speed to spare...great instincts, too.

Marcell Brooks is gonna be reaaally good. Reminds me of Jamie Collins. Can cover, blitz, tackle and has speed with a frame.

re: Marcel Brooks ends All-American Bowl with impressive showing
He will be a 5-star on rivals and 247, no clue what espn is doing or if they've even updated their rankings since the summer.

2 "stock up" reports from rivals on Marcel.

quote:

The leading tackler by a wide margin in Saturday’s game, Brooks had an outstanding second half of the week in San Antonio. A tall and lean outside linebacker prospect who should have plenty of room on his frame to add weight without sacrificing speed, Brooks plays sideline to sideline and is as effective in run defense as he is in pass coverage. Linebackers are not usually known as the playmakers of a defense, but this future LSU Tiger has a knack for making big plays.


quote:

Brooks made our stock up report after Thursday’s practice when he made plays all over the field, and that’s exactly what the future LSU linebacker did during Saturday’s game. Brooks led all players with seven tackles, three more than the next best. He recorded a sack of quarterback Sam Howell in the first half, though Howell was able to escape Brooks’ grasp on a second half touchdown run. Overall it was a strong week from Brooks, who is an elite athlete for the linebacker position.

Not going to be big enough to play LB.

Measured 6’1, 194

Think Jacoby Stevens role the last few games. At least early in his career

I imagine he will be a box safety used like a field LB. I think he ultimately backs up Jacoby Stevens in that spot while being a terror on special teams.

His height & weight is all over place; 247 Sports has him 6' 3" & 195.

Good at any size.

He measured officially this week at 6’1

I think he can play all over, but was really hoping he’d be a legit 6’3 and grow into 235 and be a pass-rushing terror.
