I'm very excited to see what Brooks can bring to Ann Arbor. I think he can be a very good fit in Beilein's system. But I also think it is very difficult for Freshman PGs to have a big impact in Beilein's offense.
I'm not questioning Brooks' basketball IQ or ability to learn, but we've heard the same things about Morris, Douglas, Burke, Stauskas, Walton, Simpson --- plus others at WVU before Beilien came to UM. Burke's the only one to star as a Freshman.
The honest truth is projecting Brooks as anything more than a 12-15min serviceable reserve PG next season is probably setting him up to be a disappointment next season ---- much like the XSimpson hype train led many to feel like Simpson has a bad season this year.
