Spring Grove grad Eli Brooks will get chance to perform in front of NBA scouts at camp
Spring Grove High School graduate Eli Brooks will participate in next week’s NBA G League Elite Camp.
Brooks will be among the 44 NBA draft prospects who will attend the event, held at Wintrust Arena in Chicago on May 16 and 17, the G League announced on Monday.
NBA and G League coaches, scouts, and front-office executives will witness the players compete in five-on-five games and participate in strength and agility drills. A handful of the top performers will be invited to the NBA draft combine held at the same building May 18-22.
Brooks played five years at Michigan, taking advantage of the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver, and set the program record for wins (124) and career games (159). The 6-foot-1, 185-pound guard started all 34 games last season, averaging 12.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.9 assists while shooting 39% from 3-point range.
He was also named Michigan’s Wayman Britt Outstanding Defensive Player, in addition to winning the Wolverines’ Thad Garner Leadership Award, the Iron Man Award (he averaged a team-best 35.9 minutes per game) and the award for outstanding free throw shooting (87.7%; 71-for-81).
He finished his Michigan career with 1,157 points.
