How good? He would become the 3rd player on his Gary West Side High School team (ranked throughout the season by the AP among the Top 3 teams in Indiana's Class 4A league) to commit to a Division I University. The other two are Chris Hunter, a 6-10 forward committed to Michigan, and Brandon Cameron, a 6-0 guard committed to Penn State. Not bad company to keep.
Keith gave his verbal commitment to the University of Idaho in November, but has not yet signed a letter of intent. At least one publication ranks Keith among Southwestern Indiana's Top 5 forwards for the region. He's a legit 10 points, 10 rebounds type of athlete who's had monster games for top ranked West Side, including a 25 point, 19 rebound performance against rival Gary Roosevelt, and a 21 point performance earlier in the season. Not bad, considering the caliber of his teammates.
Without a doubt, a front court with 6-8 signee Radlovic on one side and Christmas on the other could develop into a force with time, especially within the Big West Conference.
