DeCalon Brooks, Derrick’s son, commits to Florida State


Derrick Brooks is one of the greatest players to ever take the field for the Florida State Seminoles and they will now be getting another legendary player with the same name. DeCalon Brooks, Derrick’s son, has committed to be a part of the team’s 2017 recruiting class.

Brooks spoke about his decision to commit to the Seminoles, which he made Friday morning at Tampa Gaither High School.

They talked to me about playing strong safety and outside linebacker,” Brooks told 247 Sports. “That hybrid, third down backer that they can keep in the game instead of taking a linebacker out. They like me there and strong safety.”

During his career in Tallahassee, Derrick Brooks was a huge piece of the team’s success. They hope DeCalon Brooks, the No. 51 inside linebacker in the country for the 2017 class, will be just as good for them going into the future.
