The University of Louisville had success recruiting Fort Wayne last season, landing top 20 prospect Malik Williams and walk-on Jacob Redding from the area. Both will be freshman on the roster next season.
Now, the Cardinals are going to try their luck again.
Fort Wayne North Side 2019 five-star prospect Keion Brooks confirmed to Cardinal Authority that Louisville assistant coach Kenny Johnson was one of the first calls he received when coaches could start calling the '19 class at midnight.
"Louisville is kind of new, they just started talking to me," Brooks said. "I want to try and build a relationship with them.
"Coach Johnson said they really wanted to recruit me."
Michigan State and Indiana are two of the schools working the hardest on Brooks, who recently took a visit to UCLA. He also mentioned Purdue, Kansas and Xavier as schools involved in his recruitment.
The 6-foot-7 Brooks is the No. 14 player in the '19 class, according to Scout.com. He checks in as the No. 4 power forward.
