BHS alum Brooks inks with MACU

Copiah-Lincoln sophomore guard Damarius Brooks recently signed a scholarship to continue his career at Mid-American Christian University. Brooks is a Brookhaven High alum who averaged 14 points per game as a sophomore for coach Kenny Bizot and the Wolves. Brooks also hauled down 4.0 rebounds per game while handing out 2.6 assists and making 1.4 steals per outing. Brooks led the team by playing an average of 31.1 minutes per game.

MACU is an NAIA program located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The Evangels made the national NAIA tournament where they eliminated Tougaloo in the first round before being knocked out by William Carey in the second round by two points. As with most NAIA schools, MACU has a roster filled with Division I and JUCO transfers. Their lead guard this season was a senior, Anthony Black, who had transferred from the University of Arkansas-Little Rock.

Brooks joins fellow Co-Lin sophomores Miles Daniels and Xavier Heidelberg who have already signed letters of intent for next season. Daniels, a guard from Gulfport, signed with the Jackson State Tigers. Heidelberg, a sophomore guard from Meridian, signed with Tougaloo.
