As for Brooks, his situation gained clarity as Tuesday went on. Initially denied a release from his letter of intent, Brooks reportedly planned to attend a prep school or sit out his year at Mississippi State and transfer if his second appeal attempt was denied. However, Mississippi State reversed their stance and decided to allow the four-star forward a chance to re-open his recruitment.
