LSU cornerback diagnosed with brain cancer following surgery to remove tumor

LSU cornerback Greg Brooks Jr. has been diagnosed with a rare type of brain cancer, the school announced on Wednesday.

The senior was diagnosed with medulloblastoma three weeks after he had surgery to remove a tumor.

“For the last three weeks, Greg has been recovering from an extensive surgery to remove a brain tumor that was located between his cerebellum and brainstem,” said Catherine O’Neal, the chief medical officer at Our Lady of the Lake Health. “Greg’s speech and ability to communicate has been impacted, and although he is responsive and working daily with physical therapy, he will face months of intensive rehabilitation.”

Brooks transferred to LSU after the 2021 season after spending three seasons at the University of Arkansas.
