Four-star linebacker prospect Ellis Brooks of Benedictine High School (Va.) has committed to Duke, he announced on Twitter.

“I have a great relationship with the coaches and players,” Brooks tells “It’s also a great school academically. And I was their top target and they wanted me more than anyone else. It just feels like home and I feel the most comfortable there. “I’m very excited about my decision. The recruiting process is fun and I’m thankful for all the opportunities, but it can be stressful. Now, I can just focus on football and winning another state championship.”
