Florida State officials said Friday that Brooks' jersey would be retired in a ceremony at its Nov. 13 home game against Clemson.
Brooks becomes the eighth Florida State player to be similarly honored. The others include Heisman Trophy quarterbacks Charlie Ward and Chris Weinke, receivers Fred Biletnikoff and Ron Sellers, cornerback Deion Sanders, noseguard Ron Simmons and tailback Warrick Dunn.
A two-time AP All-American, 11-time Pro Bowler and Tampa's all-time leading tackler, Brooks helped the Seminoles to their first national championship in 1993 and the Bucs' to their only Super Bowl title in 2002.
