#99 Jamaine Brooks
Class: RS Sophomore Ht/Wt: 6-4/330 Position:Defensive Tackle Hometown: Miami, FL
Louisville’s Take: Was a productive component of the defense toward the end of the season... worked hard to drop weight and become stronger ... big, athletic defensive lineman who worked way onto defensive line rotation as the season progressed.
Thoughts: Played backup to Roy Philon most of the season. Got the start against UCONN as well as NC State in the Belk Bowl. Finished 2011 with 13 tackles and half a sack. I think Jamaine will be another solid contributor this year giving the boys up front a breather when necessary and potentially grabbing a few starts. When I hear #99 I immediately think of “The Great One”. You think Jamaine even knows who Gretzky is?
Potential Nicknames: “The Great One”, “Brooks and Ton” (with another DT)
