It appears that defensive tackle Jamaine Brooks will no longer be a member of the UofL football team. The senior, listed at 6’4 and 330 pounds, was expected to be a big man in the middle of Todd Grantham’s 3-4 defense. Now it seems like Brooks won’t be apart of the team. He sent this tweet on Monday afternoon.

Nothing has been confirmed or made official to this point. But there have been rumblings all spring as to if he was still on the team. That tweet kind of takes that talk a step further.
For what it’s worth, and maybe that’s nothing, but Brooks makes it pretty known on social media about how good of friends he is with Chane Behanan and Kevin Ware. Not saying that has anything to do with this situation, I just find it interesting since Behanan and Ware are no longer a part of UofL.
Maybe Brooks just does not want to play football anymore, or just has never gotten fully healthy from last year’s injury. Who knows right now?
