James and Tommy Brockermeyer signed their National Letter of Intents to play football at the University of Alabama Wednesday.
James is rated as a 4-Star recruit, and Tommy is listed as a 5-Star, according to Touchdown Alabama. The twins chose Alabama over their father’s Alma Mater, Texas and others. James told Touchdown Alabama the confidence they have Alabama’s staff factored heavily in their decision.
Alabama plans to line James up at center, but he can play multiple positions across the offensive line. He finishes blocks and likes to bullies defensive tackles.
Tommy will most likely play tackle. At 6-foot-6 and 283 pounds, he has the frame of a typical tackle but will benefit from adding on some weight. He knows how to make himself wide and moves extremely well laterally. He can also finish blocks and gets ti the second level.
The twins spent their senior year learning under their dad, Blake Brockermeyer, who is a former NFL offensive lineman. Blake said he teaches offensive linemen a bit different than others.
“I sort of teach a bit different from what everyone else is teaching,” Brockermeyer said. “I know Kyle Flood at Alabama will most likely teach more of it this season at Alabama. the pass protection and run block techniques I teach a bit different than normal. Defensive linemen have gotten so good, that you can not do the things I use to do. You have to change it up. I have just really been working with them on muscle memory and their brains.”
