What They Are Saying About Nick Brooks

"Like many of UF's recent cornerbacks, Brooks is not a big talker…Brooks' confidence is there, but it comes across as quiet riot rather than noisy chest-pumping."  (May 25, 2002)
Guerry Smith, Gator Bait

“He’s just finally grown up. Nick Brooks, he was on my ‘don’t like list’ for a while, he did nothing, acted like he didn’t care and that’s not all the case now. He’s being treated very good and he’s battling for a spot.”

“He’s going to play. He’s going to battle for a spot on that first team.” (8/21/2005)
Urban Meyer, UF Head Coach
