Brent prepped at West Mesquite High School, where he helped the football team to 9-3 record and Texas Class 5A Division 1 second-round playoff appearance his senior year. For the track team he ran a 22.64 in the 200m and also competed on the 4×100, 4×200, and 4×400 relay teams.
Brent was rated 2-stars by Rivals and Scout and was not rated by ESPN. Brent held scholarship offers from Boise State, BYU, Fresno State, and Yale. With a 3.8 GPA he was also recruited by Harvard and Princeton. Academics were a priority to Brent, as he told Scout.com
“That’s what I value the most. Where can I get the best education, because football won’t last forever, so I’ve gotta focus on what will carry me past football.”
BYU’s engineering program helped sway him to Provo over his Ivy League pursuers. Brent committed to the Cougars on February 4, 2015.
