One of the premier 2019 prospects in the Midwest is Ft. Wayne Northside standout Keion Brooks. Brooks, who is a skilled 6-foot-7 forward, showed his worth during the high school season on varsity, and now his recruitment is beginning to really pick up.
“I played pretty well,” said Brooks of the high school season. “We didn’t have as much success with a team as I wanted, but the progression from middle school to high school went well.”
On the recruiting trail Brooks is already beginning to become a pretty well-known commodity and coaches are making sure to track him closely.
“I am hearing a lot from the Big Ten schools,” noted Brooks. “I am especially hearing a lot from Michigan State, Purdue, and Butler.”
He continued, “I have been to three Michigan State games and two Purdue games.”
Michigan State is the school that has done the most early work with Brooks, and he is building a nice appreciation for the school.
“They really like my game,” Brooks explained of the Spartans. “I like them, and it seems like a family environment. I feel like I would fit in real well there.”
Another school that he is becoming a lot more familiar with is Purdue. Brooks has been there for games and actually has played at Mackey Arena as well.
“I liked Purdue a lot,” noted Brooks. “Mackey Arena has a great atmosphere and we played there in a team camp and it was a good place to play in.”
Look for Brooks to take his time in his recruitment. The highly thought of prospect is in no rush to make any kind of decision and is planning to make several more visits and build relationships before making a commitment down the line.
