(Nathan Breisinger, Pittsburgh Sports Now) – When Aliquippa’s Sa’Nir Brooks scheduled a trip to Morgantown for the West Virginia Elite One Day Camp on June 10, he aimed to make a lasting impression.

Once things wrapped up that evening, Brooks knew he did exactly that when he received his first Power Four offer from the Mountaineers.

It’s just the beginning of what’s expected to be an eventful recruiting process for the class of 2027 running back prospect, and the offer from WVU is only fueling his determination.

“To me, it’s pushing me to work harder,” Brooks said about receiving an offer from WVU.

Brooks, who checks in at 5-foot-10, 190 pounds, soaked it all in as he learned from the West Virginia coaching staff.

“It was great. I learned a lot from the coaches. It felt good to compete in front of them and showcase my talent,” he said.

As Brooks competed in front of the coaches, it was offensive coordinator and running backs coach Chad Scott who closely monitored the new Mountaineer target.

“I got to talk to coach Scott a lot. I was with him the majority of the day during the drills. I liked the way he was teaching us more skills to add to our game,” Brooks said.

With West Virginia becoming the third school to offer Brooks, to go along with Akron and Miami (OH), it’s safe to say that the rising sophomore’s recruitment is ready to take off. Still, he is taking the process one step at a time with the help of his parents.

“My stepdad, my dad and my mom are definitely pushing me to work harder and trying to explain to me the severity of what I’m doing and how I can’t fall off and that I got to work harder and never be satisfied,” Brooks said.

To Brooks’ benefit, he is surrounded by other Division I talent at Aliquippa like West Virginia 2026 commit Daiveon Taylor, who also competed on Monday.

“Being surrounded by all those guys, it really makes you work harder. Practicing with them every day and seeing where they’re at, it makes you want to have what they have,” Brooks said.

Another West Virginia target in the Aliquippa class of 2027, Larry Moon III, has been there along the way for Brooks as the two navigate the recruiting waters together.

“I’m with him a majority of the time, so I really get to talk to him a lot and see how his journey’s been. He’s been a real help,” Brooks said.

It also helps that Brooks can improve his game against a defensive back like Moon III as they battle each other one-on-one.

“It’s tough, but that’s what you need to get better,” Brook said.

As Brooks continues his camp season with Rutgers on June 16, UCLA on June 18 and Penn State towards the end of the month, he hopes to showcase more of his work ethic and skill set.

“I’m a player who’s going to give 100 percent every play, no matter what,” Brooks said. “My speed and my power really set me apart from a lot of other people at my position.”
