A newcomer to TCU’s football program, Marcel Brooks has ended up on the sidelines over the past couple games. Brooks is one of this year’s new transfer students and has incredible potential. He plays the linebacker position, but also manages to be quick on his feet. He comes from Louisiana State University, where he was one of their top defensive lineman.

No stranger to Texas

Marcel Brooks came home, in a way, this past summer when he decided to transfer to TCU. He comes from Flower Mound, Texas — just outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. There, he played multiple positions on the Marcus High football team. Because of his quickness, he played as a wide receiver and a defensive lineman.

During his time in Flower Mound, he was one of the top players in the area. Because of his and the teams talent, he won two different awards in his senior year of high school. In 2018, Brooks won Second Team MaxPreps All-American and his team won the Second Team ALL-USA Texas Football Team award. It was a remarkable year for the defensive team, even by North Texas high school football standards.

He went on to be one of the top recruits for the LSU Tigers that next year, in 2019. True to his versatile play-style, Brooks played as a safety in 11 games during his first season. Brooks proved to be a great safety too, even though it wasn’t his favored position. The team went on to win 2019’s national championship. His defensive line was a valuable asset to the entire team that year.

Brooks eventually moved back to his original lineman position after the 2019-2020 season. He entered the college football transfer portal the next summer, and was picked up by TCU. The school was looking to improve their defense at time, so he was a great choice.

TCU’s exciting new prospect

We were excited to see what Brooks could bring to TCU’s defensive line once the season went into full swing. So far, we’ve seen him play for only a miniscule amount of time. He’s been out with an undisclosed injury for the past two games, and some are wondering if the team is even working out for him. He’s been on the sidelines for both the Texas Tech and Baylor games now, and possibly more. According to Frogsowar.com, he is still an active member on the team.

We have yet to see what happens next for Marcel Brooks in this already strange season, but will certainly keep you up-to-date with more TCU football news.
