Steven Brooks is a 2007 right hand hitting outfielder from Seton Hall Prep, residing in Wyckoff, NJ. Brooks has a compact, strong build on his lively 6'0" 175 lb. frame. One of the nation's premier speedsters, Brooks also has hitting and throwing tools that rate very highly. He was ranked #14 among PG National Top 100 position players, earning a selection to the Aflac All-American Classic, along with two of his high school teammates, RHPs Rick Porcello and Evan Daneili. Brooks has a very quick bat and should hit for high average throughout his career. He is not only a quality line drive hitter who sprays the ball on a line to all fields, but he also has more power than you might expect in that body. The ball jumps off his bat very well, indicating his bat speed through contact. He is at his best when hitting the ball on a line and hard on the ground but as he gets older Brooks will be able to pick his spots to try and jerk one in the seats. His future role will be as a leadoff man, though he is capable of hitting as a three-hole type. Brooks not only is a plus runner, but he has a plus arm, providing him with two tools that project him as a plus defensive player. He gets good jumps and can certainly close on the ball. His tools stand out pretty clearly, it is a matter of performance for Brooks, not projection. He ran 4.18 home/1st and a laser timed 6.40 60 yard dash. Brooks is a top D1 prospect with many of the nation's premier programs recruiting him and he will also have crosscheckers come in one many occasions this season, to see him and his two teammates. It is actually quite likely that Seton Hall Prep will be the most heavily scouted high school team this season, so Brooks will certainly have his chance to impress the MLB clubs as an upper round talent.
