Mississippi State basketball won’t allow one of its top recruits, Garrison Brooks, out of his letter of intent.
Brooks, a 4-star forward from Auburn, Ala., asked to be released from his NLI in March. His father, George, is an assistant coach for the Bulldogs. But the program has denied the request, according to Rivals.com’s Corey Evans.

The younger Brooks was the second-highest rated recruit in Mississippi State’s 2017 class, behind 4-star PG Nick Weatherspoon. He was the 30th-ranked power forward in the nation and the No. 134 prospect overall for 2017.
The elder Brooks has been an assistant at Mississippi State for the past six years. The school has not announced any changes in his status with the program at this time.
