One of the highlights on the Texas junior college circuit this spring came when Brooks faced Weatherford's Jacob Stone in a matchup of two of the state's top juco arms on April 21. Brooks put up eight zeroes and Stone countered with nine as neither got a decision in a game Weatherford won 1-0 on an unearned run in the 12th inning. Brooks began his college career at Houston, where he pitched in the weekend rotation as a freshman in 2010 before missing the next year following labrum surgery. Brooks (6-foot-1, 195 pounds) dominated opposition this spring with his heavy fastball, which usually operates at 90-93 mph and peaks at 95. He's athletic and does a nice job of repeating his delivery and throwing strikes. His offspeed pitches aren't as advanced as his fastball and control, though his slider has its moments. Brooks will pitch at Texas A&M next year if he doesn't turn pro.
