High school career

Kentrell attended Guthrie High School in Guthrie, Oklahoma, where he was a two-way star for the Bluejays at defensive end and wide receiver. During a playoff game in his junior year, Brothers roasted an Oklahoma-committed offensive lineman in a game against Duncan for four sacks. As a senior, he turned around and recorded five sacks on the same commit against Duncan in week 1, and also managed to score three touchdowns in that game. Following his junior season at Guthrie, Missouri became the first school to offer him a scholarship offer. Over the course of his senior year in which he posted over 100 tackles and 19 sacks as a defensive end and caught 63 balls for 1,304 yards and 18 touchdowns at wide receiver, the number of scholarships ballooned to 14 offers from all across the country. In addition to football, Brothers also participated in basketball and tennis at Guthrie.

At the NFL Combine, Brothers ran the 40-yard dash in a disappointing 4.89 seconds, which ranked 27th among 31 linebackers, but his 4.73-second sprint at Missouri Pro Day would have tied him for the fifth-fastest among inside-linebacker prospects. In addition, he also improved his vertical jump 3 inches to 31 12 inches and matched his bench press with a personal-record 19 repetitions.
