Ja’Corey Brooks

Class: Freshman

HT/WT: 6’2, 190 LBs.

Hometown: Miami, FL

High School: IMG Academy

Number: 7

The Crimson Tide enter the 2021 season with one of the greatest freshman wide receiver groups in recent memory with Ja’Corey Brooks leading the way as the highest rated member of the group.

Rated as both a five and four-star prospect by multiple outlets, Brooks was rated as one of the consensus top wide receivers in the Class of 2021, as well as one of the top players in the talent-rich state of Florida. Playing at Booker T. Washington High School before transferring to IMG Academy for his senior season, Brooks posted a phenomenal junior season totaling 1,281 yards and 18 TD’s on 99 receptions.

While Hall might’ve caught the attention of Alabama fans early-on during the A-Day game, this entire freshman class of receivers are all capable of making a massive impact this season with Brooks arguably the most complete pass-catcher with both size and speed. Don’t be surprised at all if Brooks features a prominent role at wideout for Alabama from day one.

Prediction for 2021 Season Stat Line:

35 catches, 450 yards, 3 TD
