Talented Junior Keith Brumbaugh

One of the elite players in the class of 2005, Keith Brumbaugh, is a man of few words. Instead of idle chatter, Brumbaugh is more comfortable going off and scoring 42 in a Peach Jam game and let his actions do the talking...

Last year, Keith Brumbaugh was a second-team all-stater in Florida. He'll graduate to the first-team this year for sure. The 2005 forward has distinguished himself as one of the most versatile players in the class.

At 6-9, he checks in as the No. 4 prospect in the Class of 2005 entering the season. One of the questions that recruiters have about him is what position he is. Well, there's one school of thought that calls him a face-up four man. However, you can find plenty of recruiters who wouldn't mind playing him at the small forward slot.

Brumbaugh is equipped to handle both and probably will gradually slide into a small forward role. His jumper to 3-point range is true. He's a slick driver and the guy is wired to score.

"Small forward is where I feel more comfortable playing." Speaking of comfortable, Brumbaugh feels quite at home in the south. "I don't want to go too far [from home]," he said.

And he won't have to. Florida and Florida State are already on him. Georgia and Auburn are in the mix too. Indiana is the furthest school that he mentioned.

"I want a team that gets out and runs," Brumbaugh said. "I like to get out and run."

And he's a jumper too. Brumbaugh is a varsity volleyball player at Deland High. We've never seen him on the volleyball court but let's operate on the assumption that he's probably pretty good.
