LSU’s Starting DB, Greg Brooks Jr., I will be Back for 2023

The SEC West Division Champion LSU Tigers received some big news about its defensive roster Friday night.

Starting defensive back, key playmaker Greg Brooks Jr. announced that he would return for the 2023 season instead of heading to the NFL Draft.

Brooks shared a social media graphic and explained his decision.

“This year did not end the way we wanted or expected, but it is part of the process of building a foundation,” Brooks wrote on social media. “Normally, this is where you hear the part about moving on to the next chapter, but I believe my story in Baton Rouge is not over. I will continue this Path to Greatness at LSU for one more year. I want to close this chapter the right way alongside my brothers and Tiger Nation.”

Brooks, who started his career at Arkansas and transferred to LSU for the 2022 season, started 12 games for the Tigers, making 61 tackles, 4 passes defended and 1 interception.

Brooks has started 43 games during his college career at Arkansas and LSU, and he’ll be a major staple for LSU’s defense in 2023.
