6-2, 296-pound Denbigh (Newport News, VA) star offensive line recruit Jaymes Brooks wasn’t able to make a previously scheduled trip to the University of Florida last month due to scheduling conflicts. TSL caught up with the top in-state prospect to see if he would make the trip to Blacksburg tomorrow.

“[Denbigh Head] Coach [Tracy] Harrod said it’s really for people who need to earn something,” Brooks said of Tech’s senior camp, which takes place tomorrow. “Me and coach Harrod were talking about just going down there and checking out the campus a little bit. We don’t know yet for sure.”

Brooks, who claims seven written 1A scholarship offers and says he hears the most from Virginia Tech, Maryland, Tennessee, and Florida, continues to favor three schools. Virginia Tech, which is his childhood favorite, continues to be in good shape.

“Virginia Tech, Florida and Maryland,” Brooks replied when asked which schools were his favorites. He has never been to Florida or Maryland (although he has been up in the Maryland area), but has visited Tech several times because of track meets.

Brooks appears to be keeping with his plan of making a commitment next month and perhaps making official visits after his senior season.

“That’s still the plan,” Brooks said. “I’m going to commit at the end of August and I want to take official visits after my senior season.”

Brooks is not just thinking about recruiting, however. He’s focused on improving before his senior season and looks forward to helping his team have a successful 2006 year.

“I’ve just lifting weights, mainly,” Brooks said. “It’s been going good so far. I haven’t done a max recently, but I have been noticing improvement in my bench press.

“I do think about recruiting, but then I really think about how the team is going to do this year. My team is my main focus.”

Stay tuned, as we will follow up with Jaymes after this weekend to see if he made the trip to Blacksburg.
