2019 Miami Northwestern pass rusher Sam Brooks is at Miami camp today. Had 16.5 sacks last season and is explosive off the edge.

Excited to see him work with Coach Kool.

What you thinkn Pete? Kids going to be elite no doubt, but LB or DE at the next level? I'd love to have Bogle and Brooks on the edge but I wouldn't mind him in the LB class either.

He's a LB at the next level and his testing numbers reflect he can run and move at an elite level.

Ivins and Lake just CB'd him to us.

Damn, he has 9 minutes of HUDL highlights as a sophomore. And they're really good, too ... Needs to work on the first step coming off the edge, but very clear he's got all the short-burst skills. And he was first down the field on a kickoff which is impressive for a DE/OLB on a fast team.

Is he really 6'3" 195 as a rising Junior already? Looks like a targeted 230 kid right now with Felder overseeing his S&C. Still growing height-wise?

Samuel Brooks, 2019 OLB, Miami (Fla.) Northwestern
2/22/17
The debate about his future position, between outside linebacker and defensive end, may be far from over but one thing is sure about Sam Brooks -- he's an athlete. His testing results alone Sunday warranted consideration on Scout's list. He was a top 10 overall Nike Rating performer, checking in at just under 6-foot-2, 200 pounds, logging and impressive 4.62-second 40-yard dash time in the process. But what turns heads more with the edge rusher is a short shuttle time of 4.20 seconds, a top 20 overall time regardless of position. That time would be impressive in any region, even more so in the fertile state of Florida. The Miami Hurricane legacy recruit holds double digit scholarship offers at this time, including Power-5 extensions from Kentucky and Rutgers.

Miami Northwestern Pass-Rush Specialist: 19' DE Samuel Brooks Jr.

The bulls defense -- has an extremely gifted speed rusher that goes by the name Samuel Brooks Jr., who stands 6-foot-2, 185-pounds, who can flat out run and has the strength to cause havoc within the trenches. The bulls rising star who prefers to be known as the "Edge Hunter", deserves his sports' nickname. The "Edge Hunter" ranked number one amongst all freshman this past fall in South Florida at the highest level of competition (6A-8A classification).

This past spring -- at the Miami Nike Combine located at North Miami Athletic Stadium. Brooks Jr., ranked #3 overall amongst all defensive lineman with a rating of a 84.96. The speed rusher showcased his explosion by leaping a 33.6 (Vertical Jump) and recording an electronically-timed, 4.73 40-yard dash.

The edge rusher, finished Top 15 in South Florida in quarterback sacks. Brooks Jr., was responsible for 12.5 sacks last fall. He recorded 35 - tackles, 2 - fumble recoveries and 1 - defensive touchdown. On special teams, he also made an impact by blocking 1 - field goal and 2 - punts.

Five college football programs (Toledo, UAB, Idaho, Temple, FAU) have already extended early offers to the bulls edge rusher. He has the potential to be a 4-star at worst, all said and done considering his game and athleticism. The bulls could very well add to their NFL Draft picks with this young man.

This feels like we're getting a second shot at Ryan Shazier.

This kid is a baller. Let's lock em up
