Unquestionably one of the most consistent players to come through Maryland in the last decade, C.J. Brooks was also one of the most durable.
Including postseason games, Maryland played 50 games during the four seasons Brooks was active.
He started all 50.
Brooks was also a two-time first team all-ACC pick, maintaining that position even when the Terrapins' offense tailed off his senior season. That was a tribute to his own quality play, as well as the value he provided during three straight 10-win seasons to start his career.
The left guard led the Terps in "big blocks" (granted, that's a fuzzy stat in some ways) as both a sophomore and a junior, and and enjoyed one of his best individual games when he helped spring Bruce Perry loose for a huge day at Wake Forest in 2003.
Like most linemen, Brooks probably didn't get as much credit as he probably should have for Maryland's success early in Ralph Friedgen's tenure. But there's no question he's one of the most productive and valuable players to suit up in College Park since Friedgen arrived.
