McClymonds High linebacker Travon Brooks has accepted an offer to be a preferred walk-on at the University of Washington, Warriors coach Curtis McCauley said.
Brooks, a 6-foot-2, 230-pounder, was a first-team Oakland Athletic League All-City pick for Mack this year after transfering from Deer Valley. He was a big part of a defense that led the East Bay by allowing just 158.8 yards per game.
Brooks was also a recipient of a $1,000 scholarship from the East Bay Football Officials Assocation. McCauley said Brooks is a 4.0 GPA student.
