Early life

Brooks was born in Tucker High School.[1] Considered a three-star recruit by, Brooks was listed as the No. 126 shooting guard and the No. 521 player in the nation in 2007.[2]

College career

Brooks played collegiate basketball in the Big East Conference for the Providence Friars. Brooks saw little playing time his freshman (2007–08) and sophomore (2008–09) seasons.

Brooks began to become a major contributor for the Friars in his junior season (2009–10). He averaged 14.2 points a game, shooting 46.7% from the field. Brooks posted 20 points or more in several games, including a 24-point game on 8-of-10 shooting against Vermont on November 24, 2009, a game in which he also picked up five steals. He recorded 25 points and five rebounds on January 23, 2010 against South Florida.

As a senior in 2010–11, Brooks averaged 24.6 points per game, first in the Big East. Besides leading his team in scoring and rebounding, he was second in Division I in scoring. He was named to the 30-player national midseason watchlist and was one of 20 national finalists for the 2011 John R. Wooden Award.

On February 23, 2011, Brooks scored 52 points against Georgetown on February 5, 2011. He became only the third player in Providence history with two 40-point games in a season.

On March 5, 2011, Brooks scored 28 points in a regular season-ending win over Rutgers, giving him 468 points on the Big East regular season. That broke the previous single-season conference mark of 462 points set by Connecticut's Donyell Marshall in 1994.

Brooks finished his college career with 1,629 points, ninth all-time for Providence. On March 28, 2011, he was named a third-team Associated Press All-American. He was picked to the Fourth Team All-America by Fox Sports.[3]

Brooks left Providence College with two months left in his senior year to focus on preparing for the 2011 NBA draft.
