Offensive lineman Angelo Brooks will begin his collegiate career as a walk on at Georgia State.

“It’s the first college I wanted to go to. It’s really crazy it’s really surreal because you never think about it until you do it. It’ something people dream about.”

Two of his teammates will be making the trip up to Kentucky to attend Union College.
