TMI's Gene Hankerson posted an in-person scouting report on their board (for the game against Carlisle/the team that had Milington) :
"He dropped 26 points despite being double and triple teamed most of the night. Now, I know you're thinking, "26 points isn't that great... division one players should do that." You have to understand that Eli plays on a bad team, I mean a bad team! Carlisle is the most athletic team Spring Grove has faced, featuring a three sport division-one recruit in DeShawn Millington. After seeing the future Wolverine get off to a hot start, Carlisle made the smart decision to full court press and trap at half court to force the ball out of his hands.
Eli Brooks has game. He's highly skilled, has handles, and score at every level. He can cross you up, hit the step back three, or drive it in the paint. Brooks plays great defense as well, he had a couple impressive blocks tonight.
I walked away just really impressed, knowing that he could come in and start next season. He's that good. He's also very humble, and intelligent kid."
