Garrison Brooks is an athletic, energetic big man that can score in the post, and he also is an underrated passer for a player his size. He has a solid set of low post moves that he can use to score, and he also can make some mid-range jump shots. He will need to improve his rebounding and will need to be a more disciplined defender on a consistent basis. Recently, he showed a much improved outside shot at Mississippi State, and he also played well at the 2022 Portsmouth Invitational. Currently, he is a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
