Hopewell High center DeMon Brooks (above left) has committed to Howard University, Titans coach Eric Davis said.
Brooks is a 6-7 all-conference senior who averaged 13.5 points and 10.2 rebounds for Hopewell, which finished 29-1 and reached the N.C. 4A state semifinals. Brooks was also named to the N.C. 4A Western Regional all-tournament team.
Brooks has a 3.5 grade-point average, Davis said, and chose Howard over Colgate and Winthrop. He plans to major in engineering.
