Brooks was selected as the preseason ACC Player of the Year ahead of the 2020-21 campaign. However, his numbers regressed during his senior year, and he averaged just 10.2 points and 6.9 boards over 28 appearances last season.
The 6-foot-10 forward started 108 games over four years at North Carolina. Brooks finished fourth in ACC scoring (16.8 points per game) and fifth in rebounding (8.5) en route to earning the conference's Most Improved Player award in 2019-20.
